Hey there! I am so excited to share a fun, easy and cheap project with you all!
I love it so much that I want one for every room in my house;)
Here’s how I made it for $17!
~ I cut 8 pieces at 36″ and 8 pieces at 20″. I then cut 4 pieces of the 2×2 at 9.5″ (Lowe’s will cut your boards for you also).
~ I also bought one 1/4″ sheet of plywood at 36×20″.
I finished my shopping trip with a package of 1/2″ wood screws and 8 metal angles. The angles are back with the roofing products. There is a huge shelf of metal pieces (fun:) and these are about $.60 each.
I started by nailing the short furring strips to the 2×2′s (4 on each side). I used Gorilla Glue wood glue to secure.
I then added the long furring strips to each end also using nails and Gorilla Glue wood glue and then finished the build by attaching the 1/4″ plywood to the bottom with wood glue and nails. (I just nailed it into the bottom of the furring strips).
I used my favorite Rust-Oleum Dark Walnut Stain to finish:)
To achieve the industrial look I was going for, I added 1 angle at the top and bottom of all four edges and secured them with the wood screws. Easy right:))
This was one of the quickest projects I have done and so cheap:)
If you love it, I would so appreciate pins:) Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
