DIY Cutting Board Shelves

I am going to show you how to turn 10 cutting boards from the Dollar Tree into the cutest little shelf today.

To make this shelf the only things I needed were these 10 bamboo cutting boards and some glue.

Once I had the plastic off I started to build the first box. 

I used a good amount of E6000 on each joint. When dried, this will hold the boards together very securely. 

I also used a dab of hot glue at the end of each board to hold them in place while the E6000 is drying. 

With glue on the first four boards, I placed them into a box shape.

After building the initial box, the additional boxes only needed three sides to join them up.

I used the same process of adding E6000 and several dabs of hot glue to secure each board into place. 

Once the next three boards were securely in place, I added the final three to finish my shelf. 

After they were all in place I left the structure overnight to make sure the glue had plenty of time to harden. 

I am thrilled with how my little shelf turned out. 

Once the glue was dry it was sturdy and solid and was perfect to add some height to my décor.
