Lovely DIY Recycled Leather & Wood Shelf
Whether remodeling your kitchen, dreaming of a master bathroom addition or simply repairing a leaky faucet, a DIY project is a very rewarding task. Today we would like to present you an extremely nice project for your home, a hanging leather shelf which was found on DesignSponge.
First of all, you will need 2 wood boards, 2-4 long leather belts which are not hard to find, but unreasonably overpriced, some carpet tacks/nails, a hammer, a measuring tape/ruler and a pencil. Once you gather all these elements you can start your project by marking both boards 2″ in from either side on the top and bottom. Next, strap the belts together to create two identical loops. Hold the first plank inside the two belt loops, with the loops positioned at the 2″ mark, and reposition the belt buckles to where you like, making sure they aren’t aligning with where you need to affix the shelves.
Then you have to hammer three nails into each bealt. Once you’ve done that, you should flip the board so the front edge is facing forward and hammer one nail into the front of each board. Next, position the second board 10″ above the first one. Hammer a nail into the front of the second board. We’re almost done! The boards are secured in place, so now pull the tops of the loops tight and measure each one to ensure they are exact. Once your loops are identical heights, your shelf is ready to hang.
This lovely DIY project can help you add some flair to your home. With the help of a friend, a level to ensure the shelves are straight and longer nails, you can have your own recycled shelf.
