Urban Outfitters Hanging Shelf

A few months ago, my friend, Jalei, showed me a picture of this  floating shelf from Urban Outfitters. She wanted one for her new apartment, but after seeing the price, I decided to make a similar floating shelf for her instead. Let me show you how easy it was to make this shelf.

Step #1: I started with an old pallet I had sitting around.

Steps #2 & #3: I cut four boards @17 inches and two smaller @11 inches. If you don’t have a saw, get a 1 x 3 at Home Depot and ask them to make the cuts for you.

Step #4: I used my orbital sander to make the boards smooth.

Step #5: Next, I applied wood glue  to the boards.

Step #6: A few screws went into the two bottom pieces.

Step #7: I finished with four wood hook screws – one for each corner.

I tied a rope to the hooks and tied a knot at 2 feet. The shelf hangs from a sturdy hook in the ceiling.

To protect the wood from spills, I applied a Polyurethane in clear satin.

I can’t wait to give this shelf to Jalei!
