DIY Circle Shelf

DIY Round Shelf | The Merrythought I had been trying to find something to upcycle into a circular shelf for my wall for a few weeks and I stumbled across an old basket with lots of holes in the bottom for 99 cents at Salvation Army. So I snatched it up, brought it home, and started ripping it apart. Now I have a new shelf! And here’s how you can too:
DIY Round Shelf | The Merrythought What you need:
-Old basket/cheese box/anything round that is pretty sturdy – look at a thrift store in the furniture/home decor sections.
-Some unfinished pieces of wood (I used 1Γ—6 but it will depend on the size of the round object you find)
-Miter box Saw
-Circular saw
-Belt sander
-Stain
-Nail gun

How to do it: (These steps will vary depending on what round object you chose to use.)
-Cut the back side of the basket off using the miter box saw.
-Measure across the basket where you want the shelves and then use the circular saw to cut wood that size.
-Use a belt sander to shape the edges of the wood so that it will fit inside the circle tightly.
-Stain the pieces of wood.
-Use the nail gun to nail shelves in place.

Off to start getting ready for a bachelorette party tonight and then lots of wedding prep for the next couple of days. See you next week!

    This is fabulous. I fell in love with a round mirror at West Elm a year ago, but it sold out before I could get my hands on it. *sigh* This is a similar option!ReplyCancel
