Ingredients

  • Charged drill
  • Wood Screws
  • Pallets
  • Hammer/crowbar
  • Miter saw or another saw
  • Pencil
  • Tape measure
  • Three hip baskets

Instructions

  1. First, decide if you want to make the shelves wide or have more depth.

  2. Build around the size of the baskets you pick out

  3. The basic structure will be the same, but there won't be the exact measurements due to basket sizing.

  4. The worst part of this is taking the pallets apart; we used a hammer and crowbar to pry ours apart.

  5. We opted to have three panels to ensure it had support and then attached a pallet board cut to the size we wanted to the sides on the top and the bottom.

  6. Next came the placing of the baskets.  

  7. We used the thicker pallet boards for the cross boards on the back. We also used the thicker pallet boards for the cross boards on the top and bottom of the sides.

  8. Once we had the sides assembled, we stood them to decide how long we needed the backboards and where to place one board for the laundry baskets to slide onto.

  9. We cut the boards to size then drilled the panels together for the baskets to hang on.

  10. Once you have the sides and the supports assembled, next comes the top.

  11. We did a cross board on the top to give us a place to attach pallet boards to make a top.

  12. Play with how to place imperfections in the wood and then cut them to size.

  13. To attach, we drilled a screw in each end to the top of the shelf unit, but it also made the unit more solid.

  14. Isn't that an awesome top? I love how this project turned out!! Piecing it and putting it together took less than an hour; the worst part was separating the pallets!!
