    The DIY Guy shows you how to build a pallet shelf lookalike that doesn't require you to acquire and disassemble an actual pallet.

    You're welcome.

    Instructions:
    1) Measure your space.
    2) Cut boards to alternating lengths.
    3) Lay boards out in a staggered pattern.
    4) Use pocket hole jig to secure boards together.
    5) Measure desired width and cut 2 boards to 1inch shorter than measurement.
    6)Line up shelves and pre-drill holes for shelves to avoid cracking.

    Use 2 1/2 inch pocket hole screws to fasten shelves.
    * If you are using Rustic Cottage Pine Wall Planks you are done (go you!)
    7) Distress wood to desired look.
    8) Stain final product.
