Restoration Hardware Shelf Hack

Last spring, I spotted a shelf in the Restoration Hardware catalog that I absolutely loved, but I wasn’t feeling the same love for the price. It would have been $285 for the shelf and another $25 for the shipping. Youch!

Fortunately, I knew it was something that my husband and I could easily replicate.

After procrastinating for far too long, we finally tackled this project last week. Here’s what we did:

We hit the plumbing aisle at the home improvement store and picked up two 12-inch long pieces of threaded 3/4-inch galvanized pipe, two caps and two floor flanges. Then, we swung by Wal-Mart for flat black spray paint and stain (it’s much cheaper there).

We screwed the pieces together, and painted them black. Then, we stained a 38-inch long 2″ x 12″ board (leftover from another project).

When everything was dry, my husband hung the shelf. Here’s the end result:

Nice, huh? And it didn’t cost us $310, plus tax or anything close to that. In fact, I just totaled our receipts, and we spent $53.27

At that price, we could afford two. And we built another shelf to go over the door to my office.

This one added seven feet of storage space to my office. Nice!
