DIY Pallet Shelves


Pallets. You can really make anything out of a wood pallet. We are constantly seeing new things that people have made out of a pallet, it's pretty amazing really. What did we make? Book shelves for baby boys room. Here's the how to:

Materials
1 wood pallet
electric sander
nails
hammer
lots of books

Whatcha gotta do
1. Cut the two ends of the pallet off.
2. Sand them down.
3. There should be a couple extra wood slats left from the middle of the pallet. Nail them to the bottoms to cover underneath the pallet shelves.
4. Hang them up, we screwed them into the wall to make them more secure.
5. Fill it up with lovely little books that baby loves.
Not too difficult eh? And aren't they just so fun and rustic?
Good luck!

    1. I was baby hungry a few months into my marriage too haha. But we ended up waiting about a year until we started trying. I'm due April 29th! It's crazy how fast pregnancy goes and then it slows down near the end.. go figure!
