About Project

Author Notes: 

I loved making this project.

It was so fun, fast and easy!
We needed a quick spot for hanging stockings - yes, I am guilty of spending all my time making gifts at Christmas time and neglecting the decorating part - and of course I had to go whip up a little vintage shelf.
You could make this shelf as a gift as well. It's a fun sturdy little shelf full of character, charm and usefulness.  Anything from bathrobes to backpacks could be hanging from this shelf!

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Step 1

Vintage Shelf with Hooks

Cut the supports out with a jigsaw. Just go slow, take your time and cut one at a time. When you are happy with the first, use it as a pattern to cut the second.

Step 2

Vintage Shelf with Hooks

Mark the underside of the top shelf 3" in from each end. Then attach supports with either the Kreg Jig or with countersunk screws and glue.

Step 3

Then attach the back hook board to the sides in the notched space as shown above. I actually used my 1 1/4" pocket hole screw and glue.

Step 4

Now attach the hooks. TIP: I hung my shelf by simply screwing through the back supports and then hid the screws with the hooks :) But you can use D-Rings, picture hanging kits, or even screw hole covers.

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Your daughter has the same stocking as my daughter.
Don't tell me those are Pottery Barn knock-offs as well. :)
