Currently, I have a basket for their books, but I found some pallet shelves on pinterest that I thought would work perfectly in here. Right on time, my neighbor had sod delivered on two pallets that he didn't mind giving to me!
I was able to find great directions on making these into shelves from Ana White Homemaker. I enlisted the help of my dad, my own personal handyman, to complete this project. We made a few changes from the directions:
What's even better is that it got me to hang up the curtain I've had for almost a year! I was able to repurpose some light strand covers to put on the ends of the valence. I have a set of baseballs on here, footballs, soccer balls, and basketballs on their other window treatments.
- We had to replace some of the boards with others that were cracked. Dad carefully pried the boards up so that they didn't split from the nails.
- We cut our shelves in half next to the brace.
- For the bottom, we used one of the pallet slats previously cut in half instead of scrap wood.
