Easy wooden shelves

My saying this year seems to be “another persons trash is another persons treasure”. I took a wooden pallet and created some much needed home decor for my basement. Find out how below!


  • Wood pallet
  • Saw
  • Sanding machine
  • Clear wood lacquer
  • Paint brush / sponge
  • Nails
  • Picture hanger
  • LED candles

Step one:

Pick a good pallet, use your saw and cut!

Step two:

Measure each panel length for mine I made one 4″ longer. Measure for the shelf that holds the candle.

Step three:

Sand wood. Then stain each wood piece using clear lacquer and let dry over night

Step four:

Nail the shelf through the back to secure the shelves for the candle

Step five:

Add picture hanger to the back

Step six:

Hang on the wall!
