About This Project

Pallet, scrap wood from garage

We are going for a rustic look in our teen sons bedroom. He has some large books that will not fit onto his bookshelf so a pallet wall shelf seemed like a perfect solution.

This project literally took five minutes. If you don't have a sawsall it would probably take around 30 but still pretty quick.

Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Estimated Time Investment: 
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Finish Used: 
Our pallet didn't come with tons of character so I did a vinegar and steel wood treatment to it to help age the wood.
Estimated Cost: 
Less than $5


I loved these pallet shelves! I had just the right place to use them. Rustic pallets are one thing. Dangerous and full of splinters is another thing. I wanted them a certain dimension. So, I had my husband make me these from scrap wood he had in the garage. He was less than pleased. I have since added word art to the front of our shelves. They are used to hold our current school books. :o)

It looks amazing and creative. I am actually restoring some space in my garage so this kind of display would fit perfectly with my garage storage idea. I've only got brilliant ideas from you, way to go!
