I have always had a lot of boxes and shelves laying around my house, suiting no purpose. I then decided why not re-purpose them! I planned to construct these stacked shelves from old dresser doors and boxes. Everything you see in this project is re-purposed and can more than likely be found around your home, ally or junkyard. This project is so easy to make and beautiful in any home.
Step 1: Gather!
Locate any necessary materials and tools you might need to accomplish your desired outcome of your stacked shelves. I had found some boxes and old shelves laying around my home. While, some of the other shelves I found in an alley that were once apart of a dresser. You’d be surprised on all the good quality things that get thrown away!
Step 2: Materials & Tools
- Old dressers or wooden boxes laying around (can be from junk yard or allies too).
- Phillips screws
- Power drill (Ryobi 60 pcs. drilling and driving kit)
-Drill bits (I used black oxide and Phillips drill bits)
Step 3: Plan
Once I gathered all the parts I wanted for my stacked shelves I assorted the placement of them. It’s good to have a good idea of how you want the final product to look, so that you build accordingly.
Step 4: Unscrew
Since my materials were all reused from other things I had to polish them up before using them in this project. For example, I had to unscrew the nails from the dressers and strip the excess wood parts I no longer wanted.
Step 5: Assemble & Place
Now that you have your tools, materials and a plan it’s time to build! I took two shelves at a time and put together. Then, I built onto the piece by adding and creating new compartments for the shelve. The majority of the screws used in this project were from when I took apart the shelves and boxes I already had. Then, you keep drilling more shelves until you fulfill desired outcome.
Once, your stacked shelves are pieced together find a beautiful place to put them. You can place them on a wall, the floor, they can substitute your headboard etc. This is a creative project to spice up any room in the house, while providing you with storage. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did making it.
