Mark’s DIY Repurposed Pallet Shelves

What you need:

Pallet (will make 2 - 4 shelves)

Reciprocating or skill saw

2x4, hammer and nails or screw gun and screws

Electric sander

Finish (stain, paint, etc.)


Measure and mark where you will make your cuts on the pallet.

Use a reciprocating, skill, or jig saw and cut the pallet.

Measure inside of the bottoms and cut a 2x4.

Screw in 2x4 to make the bottom of the shelf.

Smooth down all edges with a sander.

Stain, paint, or age for different looks.

Hang (due to weight, screw directly into studs).
