How to Build a Pantry Shelf under $50
The final plans for this DIY Pantry Shelf, made from 2×4’s, is finally here! I am so excited to announce that I have collaborated with the amazing Ashley Basnight from HandmadeHaven to help me create digital plans for you to follow. She is amazing! Her Instagram handle is SmashingDIY and you can follow her here. Make sure to pin these graphics so you can use them later!
The entire step by step project is linked to her Handmade Haven Blog Series here. I created the project and she created the plans – we made such a great team. We will do a few more of these projects together this year and I can not wait. Ashley is a lead blogger in DIY’s and you do not want to miss a single post she shares!
