DIY Palette Bookshelf/Wine Rack

DIY breakfast table rehab…check. DIY breakfast chairs recovered…double check.

But we are still looking a little bare in these parts.

Remember that shabby little palette I dragged home last week? Time to bring this rugged fella inside transformed into a pair of cookbook/wine shelves for my kitch.

I started by cutting the palette into sections using a jig saw…and used a good ol’ handsaw to clean up a few cuts, but not necessary until you too are anal enough to allow a roll of toilet paper turned the wrong way keep you up at night.

Two horizontal slats per shelf…

With no board across the bottom, books/bottles would slide right out, so I used a few left over scraps of wood from the palette to make a bottom for each shelf. The slat were already the perfect size, so just a few nails were needed to secure them in place.

Perfect…finished! This rehab was a breeze. A few cuts. A few nails and your in business.

Let’s hang these stud muffins.

And fill their bellies with all kinds of goodies.

I’m planning to whip up another post to cover how I hung these palette princess, but here’s the pre-post skinny: I’m not 100% sure I went the best route so a re-hang may be in my near future…hopefully without a crash before I’m able to get to it. I’d better go take those wine bottles down.

AND more to come later in the week on my fab-o time scootin’ around P. Allen Smith’s Moss Mountain Farm with a fun group of blogger gals in our fancy new Ariat cowgirl boots—thanks to Country Outfitter for the hookup!
