This guy makes the cutest wall storage and it only cost him $5

I have seen lots of these mountain shelves on Pinterest and thought I would have a go at making one for myself.

  • three peaks mountain shelf
I wanted to use reclaimed pallet wood for this project but I did not have any wide enough. So the first thing I did was to joint one edge of some boards and then put some glue on them.
