For this DIY project you’ll need:

  • wooden boards
  • rope cord
  • scissors
  • metal rings
  • drill

To make these awesome hanging shelves, follow these steps:

  1. If you have wooden boards of the same size, you won’t need to cut them. But if you don’t, use a saw to cut them into even-sized pieces. 24 inches would be a perfect size.
  2. Drill two holes on each of the opposite sides of the boards. Make sure there’s the same distance between them.
  3. Cut two pieces of the cord, fold them in half and put the folded end under the metal ring, make a loop knot.
  4. There should be four strands of the rope hanging from the ring. Pull the strands through each of the holes in a board. Make the knots. Cut off the excess cord.
  5. Drill holes in the wall and so you can hang your shelves.
