I made this set of Pallet Barn Shelves out of necessity. The shelves measure: 48″ H x 40″ W x 36″ D. I made this shelving unit from upcycled barn wood from my property and random pallets. It took three pallets to create and three pieces of lumber from the fences.
Make yourself a set of these Easy DIY Pallet Barn Shelves to organize your garage, shed, workshop, outdoor spaces or add to your rustic indoor decor!
First, cut several pieces of lumber to the length you choose. I cut the lumber to 48″ tall and used three boards to make this as deep as I needed (dimensions listed above). I placed three boards on the ground, good side facing out, and attached them together towards the bottom, and at three other locations to create shelving brackets as well. Next, I repeated it for the other side of the shelving frame. I stood both sides up and attached them together, starting with the bottom shelves that I made from pallet wood. I continued to create shelves all the way up and topped the shelving unit off with three more boards that were the entire width, screwing them into the vertical pieces for extra support.
