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?
