Steph has been looking for some shelves in her office to hold supplies. We haven't used pipe or pallet wood before in a project so we thought shelves would be a great way to try both materials and get some cool shelves! Check out our website for the video on how this came together!
Watch the video!
- Pallet (they come in different shapes and sizes- we used a pallet that had wood 5.5" wide)
- Sawzall (to cut pallet)
- (2) 3/4" Plumbing Pipe 6" length
- (2) 3/4" Flange
- (2) 3/4" Cap (we priced out each item separately and found it cheaper to buy them in a set on amazon. Same pipes you would buy from the hardware store but it came all together in one package)
- (16) Screws and anchors
We deconstructed a pallet.
We sanded the wood and used a spray finish to seal it.
We made rough marks of where we wanted the shelves.
We attached the flange to the wall and then screwed the pipe into that.
Then we placed the wood on the pipes and filled the shelves!
