DIY Canister Shelf

I’ve had this project in mind for a long time… so much so that I haven’t bought rolling tobacco in two years and I still had ten empty canisters in a box. Hubby got a piece of maple for me and sealed it so I could use it as a base.

I marked the wood and heated up a glue gun to start constructing.

I used a single line underneath each canister, and made sure to put the wood at the front of them where the openings are, so that the shelf wouldn’t tip forward.

I set the next row on top and marked where the next lines of glue would go.

I repeated the process for the third and final rows.

Almost ready!

I went over the back with the glue gun to join the backs for extra stability.

Once everything cooled, I made sure it was nice and stable and set it up by the door.
