This functional and unique idea is a striking statement piece and costs next to nothing to make. This is my favorite kind of project: quick, easy and best of all, cheap!

These shelves are so great for displaying books, picture frames and trinkets. They are great for children’s rooms and you can even use these shelves as a hanging planter stand!


I always find myself hoarding small trinkets that I have no idea where to store. I hung some of these shelves last year, and they’re already overflowing with plants, frames, and small ceramic sculptures.

Making it couldn’t be any easier. Here’s what you need to get started.:

  • 5 11″x48″ plywood boards
  • Pink paint – or whatever color or wood stain you like for your space
  • Foam brush
  • Rope
  • Power drill
  • Screw hooks
  • Triangle
  • Scissors
  • Sandpaper
  • Duct tape
  • Paper
  • Pencil

Watch how simple it is to make this hanging shelf in Mr. Kate’s step by step tutorial below, or read her blog post here.

I love the simple look of the wood and the strength of rope cord. The result is a simple design that makes a big impact in your space.

Just one more great idea for getting things organized!
