DIY Shelf Made With Recycled Wood and Hemp Rope

Hello Everyone!

Happy Friday! Today I want to share a DIY shelf made with recycled wood and hemp rope. I’m planning to use this in my bathroom to store all the small samples of beauty products that I seem to collect.

We had a small pile of wood sitting around and I suggested to my boyfriend that we make something with it.  He is better using the tools than I am– I’m more of the idea person. Which means– he did the actual work.

I found a couple of ideas on Pinterest and we went to work. Well, I should clarify– my boyfriend went to work. It took him about two hours to make this shelf from start to finish.

The photo above was our inspiration. And the pile of wood we used was originally going to be used for a pool cue rack (there’s no longer a pool table in our house so why not use the wood for a bathroom shelf?).

Not only that, the shelf looks great in my bathroom and we repurposed something that was just sitting around.  I did purchase the hemp rope for approximately $6.00.  And there is enough of that left to use in future projects (a kitty condo/cat scratcher is next on the list).

Happy Friday everyone! Remember to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Cheers, Jody 😃
