This quick and easy wall shelf assembled with pocket screws and wood glue provides style and functionality in our bathroom. The hooks give us a place to hang and steam clothes and the shelving provides room for a plant and extra storage space.

Directions

Follow the steps below to complete this project.

1

Cut wood

Rip the 1x12 to a 28" length. With the 1x6, cut a 12" length and a 16" length.

2

Drill Pocket Holes

Drill 2 pocket holes in a long end of the 12" 1x6 piece and 3 pocket holes in a long end of the 16" 1x6 piece.

3

Prefinish the wood

Sand and stain all 3 pieces of wood.

4

Attach the shelves

Using wood glue and 1 1/4” pocket screws, attach the 16” piece flush with the left side of the 1x12, 3 inches above the bottom. In the same manner, attach the 12” piece flush with the right side of the 1x12, 3 inches below the top.

5

Apply Polyurethane

Apply polyurethane if using and follow manufacturer instructions to allow proper drying time.

6

Install Hooks

Line up the hooks parallel to the 16” piece and evenly space them under the 12” piece. Mark and pre-drill holes and then attach the hooks. Note: the screws included with the hooks may be too long. I used #8 3/4 in wood screws with my hooks.

7

Attach hanger to the back

After much consideration, I chose to use an 18” Hangman Picture Hanging System. The length allowed me to drill the screws into studs and it holds more weight than I would ever need it to.
