Introduction: Pipe & Pallet Shelf

About: We're Mother Daughter Projects, sharing our DIY adventures as we learn to maintain, improve, decorate, and use tech in our homes.

Steph has been looking for some shelves in her office to hold supplies. We haven't used pipe or pallet wood before in a project so we thought shelves would be a great way to try both materials and get some cool shelves!

Step 1: Watch the Video

Step 2: Gather Materials

  • Pallet (they come in different shapes and sizes- we used a pallet that had wood 5.5" wide)
  • Sawzall (to cut pallet)
  • (2) 3/4" Plumbing Pipe 6" length
  • (2) 3/4" Flange
  • (2) 3/4" Cap (we priced out each item separately and found it cheaper to buy them in a set on amazon. Same pipes you would buy from the hardware store but it came all together in one package)
  • (16) Screws and anchors

Step 3: Deconstruct the Pallet

We cut the sides off with a sawzall then cut through the middle support, and cut the boards off.

Step 4: Sand and Seal the Board

Step 5: Decide Where You Want the Shelves

Step 6: Attach Pipes

Step 7: Use a Straight Edge and Level to Get Pipes Lined Up

Step 8: Add Pallet Wood and Done
