This post is a bit late, but here it is.
Well it’s the time of year again for gardening… And as you can see I had a huge lack of space! No home for my garden seedlings. Luckily, spring cleaning happened in my office and they had some leftover planks.
So we had the shelving and just needed some supports. The hubs found affordable wood stringers, legs and angle brackets.
End of Day 1: We put in most of the work on this project on day 1. At this point it was a bit unstable and had a nice tilt to it, so we left it against the wall.
End of Day 2: One more shelf. Now it was more stable.
FIN: …And we are done!
4 structural legs $10/piece = $40
8 stringers $1.30/board = $10.40
Angle brackets $3 for 4, used 8 per shelf. Total = $24
Total spent = $74.40
Total savings for four 6 foot planks about $60.
Not a bad price for a solid wooden piece of furniture.
