Instructions for How to Make a Pallet Shelf

Taking Apart & Cutting Pallet Wood

Jason is always up for helping me with projects made with pallet wood.  Pallet wood is awesome because it’s free & has so much character!!!

Rather than dismantling a whole pallet like I would normally do for a pallet project, I only used a small section of the bottom of it. 

Because this pallet had a built in curve on the side it was the perfect to remake for a wood shelf.

Jason helped me saw apart the top 1/3 of the pallet using his saw-zaw.

Next he sawed the top portion in half again with his circular saw.

The portion of the pallet shelf that is left is now 21 inches wide, 13.5 inches tall & 4 3/4 inches deep.   

Which so happens to be the perfect size for a pallet wall shelf!

Adding Details & Assembling the Pallet Wood Shelf

Jason cut one of the top sides of the shelf with a jigsaw freehand to create a curve. 

Using the curved piece of wood as a template for the other side he curved the other top side so they both matched.

Jason next cut 2 pieces of pallet wood. 

One for the back of the shelf to give it a solid back & one for the bottom of the shelf so that the flowers wouldn’t fall out. 

He attached both boards with our pin nailer. 

Hanging our Pallet Shelf for Flowers in the Bathroom

Lastly, we sanded the wood shelf down as best as we could and drilled a hole along the center of the back to hang the shelf with.

We nailed our pallet shelf to the wall making sure to nail it into a stud in our wall.

The shelf depth is the perfect size for a jelly mason jar!

I added three pint jars to the inside of the wood pallet shelf so it could hold lots and LOTS of flowers. ūüôā
