I saw this shelf on Pintrest a while ago and wanted to make it. As soon as the season for Valentine's was coming , I started the shelf. I decided I wanted to make a few at a time. As I'm sure I'd sell or use them as gifts. I asked by Hubby to help. On Friday, I drew up various designs based off of pictures of various LOVE shelves that I had seen. Then, I decided how tall I wanted the shelf to be and came up with the other dimensions. I had a wood pallet made out of 2x4 so I did not have to purchase wood or screws. On Saturday, my hubby and I cut the boards and assembled the shelf. Then I stained some, I wanted a few different looks, so I also painted one giving it a shabby chic finish. I am very pleased with how all the shelves turned out! However it was very large so I decided to make some half the size. I will show you both below. Make whatever works for your space.
Wood: untreated 2x4 or 2x8 for best results
Wood Screws: 26, 2.5 - 4 in each
Sandpaper and Sander
D Rings (to put on back to hang)
*Paint: be sure you have both primer and paint. I used black primer and the color I used was Chalk White by General Finishes
*Stain: if you go this route I used Classic Grey by Minwax, Special Walnut by Minwax
