Freecycle Shelving from Knock Off Wood

One of my favorite sites is Knock Off Wood.  You see, my husband is a carpenter and although he enjoys making me things I'm quite impatient and hate waiting for him to draw up plans and get a supply list.  Then one day I discovered Knock Off Wood where I can print out the plans and supply list (even know how much it will cost which is a great argument for getting it done!) and hand it to him as we head to the hardware store!

A while back she posted these pallet shelves and I fell in love (you may hate them, they aren't for everyone). I had the hubby bring a pallet home from work and TA DA!
One pallet made two big book shelves and the one small shelf I have the boots on.  Love them or hate them?

  1. I love the idea, but the appreance is a little too "raw" for my liking. I think it depends on the room it is in and whatnot. But I could do this with a little post building treatment.. maybe a little paint?

    Either way, it is a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love it! Especially the stenciled numbers on the side. I would totally do this if I had a mud room :)

  3. I love them! I am always trying to figure out how to contain our personal library, and these look like they would work nicely! Might have to give it a try :)

  14. I LOVE them. Would all depend on your style. For instance, would never work in my sister's designer formal house, but would look great in mine!
