About Project

Author Notes: 

Sometimes you just want a simple wood wall shelf. But your budget's closer to $10 than $79 dollars.  

Well, do not despair.  I promise you, you can have it all, without going broke!

My friend Jaime and I teamed up to make these beautiful solid wood wall shelves for just $11 dollars each for 3 foot long!  The shelves are super easy to make and you can stain or paint them any color you like!

Seriously, friends don't let friends go out and spend 5 or 10 times as much on something they could make quickly and easily.  I certainly can't let you do that!

We've got the full step by step plans following, please check them out.  But first, please stop over and read through Jaime's post and see lots more pictures on how she put her shelves together and hung them.

  Thank you so much Jaime!

PS - Jaime's got a new batch of work aprons up for spring!

Perfect for Mother's Day!

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 2

Attach back to sides. If using pocket holes, also drill pocket holes facing upward for attaching top in later steps.

Step 3

Next, attach top to sides and back.

When you hang, you can hang directly through back 1x4 into studs in walls.

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.
