Pallet Wood Shelving Unit

Pallet Wood Shelving Unit

Since we've been in our house, we'd had an inherited wicker, four-drawer chest in our bathroom housing all our novelty soaps, bath toys & unused gift shower gels. Over the years & especially since the arrival of one little boy into our house; it has become 'underwhelming' to look at & is quite damaged thanks to Raph taking it apart one wicker strand at a time. So I thought it'd be a nice idea to replace it with a much more practical, larger shelving unit.

I pretty much just took apart 2-3 similar sized pallets & made 5 shelves. I then attached 4 long lengths to the sides to support the shelves with equal spacing between the shelves. I'm pretty pleased with it & it's really sturdy. I've just fixed a screw through it into the bathroom stud wall in case the kids decide to climb up it when we're not looking! 

The only thing you need to be careful with when reusing pallet wood is that the thickness changes between pallets. My middle shelf is from a slightly thicker wood so you need to take that into account when measuring for the lengths. Alternatively; buy new wood! As much as I love recycling wood, it can become quite tedious taking pallets apart, so if you want a quicker project, just measure up & nip to your local timber or DIY place for new wood. While you're there, buy an extra tape measure; kids love them & they always go walkabout!
