This DIY Hanging Pallet Wood Shelf is a fun and functional way to dress up a bare wall while landing yourself some extra decorating space. It's easy to re-create these floating shelves at home with materials you probably already have in your garage. The rope accents give the shelf a rustic look and the wood can be stained or painted any color to go with your room's decorating scheme. Floating shelves can retail for big bucks at furniture stores, so spare your wallet and pick up a pallet for this thrifty DIY alternative!

Such a fun project! The minute I saw this I knew that it was going to be perfect for our youngest daughters bedroom. With a couple of improvisations we had all the materials required and it took me a total of 2 hours. Unfortunately I am having trouble posting a photo but she loves it and has named it Ted Bears Shelf after her favorite bear that is now sitting in his new position above her bed.

We have an old cottage by the sea. Well it is really more of an old shack that we are forcing into becoming a cottage, lol! The major job that we have carefully been avoiding for years is the kitchen because we know what a big job it is going to be and we can not afford to hire someone to do it for us. Thank you for this great tutorial! The wonkiness of our cottage has been the biggest problem we have identified and this project has given us the confidence and help we need!
