This past spring my previous neighbor was deposing of an old picket fence and asked me if I wanted the wood. I of course said yes because it was free wood.
After our huge living room remodel I really wanted shelves, rustic ledge shelves like these from Pottery Barn. Spending $65 for one shelf is a tad ridiculous. I decided to build on myself out of the old fence.
- 2 – picket fence pieces cut to 24″ in length (4″x24″)
- 4 – 4″x4″ fence piece
- 1 – 1″x2″ cut to 18″ in length
- 10 – 2 1/4″ screws
Total time per shelf: 20 minutes without polyurethane.
