This is a fun and easy shelf to build. It works great in the bathroom or any blank space for extra storage. You only need one 2x4, one 2x6 and a few tools to create this great hanging shelf.

  1. Project Steps

    1. Step: 1

      Your first step is making your cuts! I used my Ryobi Miter saw for this part. Here is the cut list: 2x4 Board 2 cuts at 40" long 2x6 Board 3 Cuts at 21" long

    2. Step: 2

      Next, attach your boards! We like to pre drill on this part. It helps keep the wood from splitting. You can see here where to attach all of your boards. Just run a line of wood glue at each joint and use your drill to attach them with 2 1/2" wood screws.

    3. Step: 3

      Large 1870dd10 d7bf 43f9 9947 dfefb6916bbc

      Stain or paint your piece. Add a piece of rope between your holes, and add a knot on each end to hang. You can cut the rope the length you need it. Attach the hook to the wall. Make sure to use an anchor if you can't attach it directly into a stud. Hang your shelf from the hook and you are done! For more how-to projects from Shanty2Chic, visit
