You can build this beautiful hanging shelf for less than $50 in just a few hours with instructions from MyHomeIdeas.com. Before getting started, pick up a 10-foot poplar 1 x 8 and have it cut into four 28-inch pieces at Schutte Lumber in Kansas City. You will also need:

  • a quart of paint or finish you like
  • 24 feet of 3/4-inch sisal rope
  • a 5/8-inch dowel rod cut in 2-inch pieces
  • and a plant or wall hook to hang the shelf
  • a drill

Now follow these instructions to build the shelf. Remember, when drilling holes through the poplar boards, place a scrap piece of lumber underneath to prevent tear-out. What other building projects are you interested in for your home? Let us know by leaving a comment.
