Shelves

After two years of saying I was going to put up some shelves, I’ve finally done it and am so happy with the results!  These shelves were in my master closet when I moved.  After trying a few things,  I couldn’t find any functional use for them so I removed them.  You can see the wall the shelves came from in my post about patching the holes the shelves left behind.

Since then, I’ve put a shoe rack in place of the shelves and I hung my  necklaces about eye level above the shoe rack.

Before putting up the shelves, I bought a few extra mounting brackets and screws to replace ones that were damaged during removal.  Other than the couple of dollars spent to get the extra parts, the shelves are 100% up-cycled.

I chose to mount the shelves right by my door to the house for convenience.  I also bought bins from the dollar store to hold my painting supplies, gardening tools, and other yard and outdoor supplies.  The four shelves  fill up the wall perfectly and I even have enough room to fit my lawn mower underneath.

What are some things you’ve up-cycled?

  1. I love the way that looks! I have some similar shelves in my garage, but everything just gets crammed on there and it looks awful. Those colorful baskets are a perfect solution!

  2. It always feels good to find a new use for an old item … this was a great way to use those closet shelves! I’ll bet you find all kinds of things to store on them now.
