2.Floating Shelf

Start by making your cuts. The back of the frame that’s attached to your wall will be a 2×3 cut at 32”. Each shelf (we are guessing you’ll go for 3) will have 3 brackets that are each 7.75” long. Add pocket holes on one end of each of the brackets. Next, attach the brackets using 2.5” pocket hole screws. Mark your studs on the wall using stud finder then do a pre drill on two holes where each stud lined up. Use wood screws to attach each frame and add bottom ¼” hardwood plywood. Attach them to the base of the frame using wood glue and 1 ¼” brad nails. Add a 1×10 board for the top piece. Trim it all out with whitewood by cutting the side pieces. Attach them with 1 ¼” brad nails and glue. Attach 33.5” long board for the front piece. Stain your shelves in dark walnut. Source

3.Sport Equipment

Put your old pallets to organizational use by turning them into sport equipment storage. Glue your pallets if you are worried it might split then clamp it together while it dries. Give it a rough sanding using an orbital sander and a sanding block. Stain it with a dark walnut finish. If you want to add an extra little touch, cut out some stencils and paint words with some white paint. Load it up with all of your gear. Source

4.Cute Little Nightstand

Take scraps of woods out of the garage and build a nightstand by turning into a standing position with the shorter side on the bottom and attach ball feet for decoration. Coat it with a white paint and embellish the inside part with scraps of wallpaper you have lying around at home as long as it matches your overall bedroom theme. Put it beside your bed as your nightstand and adorn it with a lamp on top and a nice frame or a vase. Source

5.Shower Caddies Organizer

A mounted pallet board always works if a teeny-tiny bathroom is all you’ve got. Attach glass jars on top of your old pallet board to stash your items. However, if you want everything to be within your reach, you can opt for convenient pallet compartments by cutting them into smaller sections and adding a bottom. Attach them on the gap between your sink and cabinet. These shelves become handy to store your bath items. Source
