Essential Oil Wall Shelf

 Sometimes when you need something you have to make it yourself.

I was in search of something pretty specific...  

a shelf to hold my collection of essential oils.

I looked online and they were all quite large and expensive!

So I did what I do... I made one myself.

I had a wire drawer in my workshop that I thought would work nicely!

I began by cutting 2 pieces of scrap wood to the size I needed for shelves. 

I am using pressure treated wood only because it was leftover from this project and it was a thinner wood.

I placed the shelves where I wanted them to be in the wire drawer then used large staple nails on the sides of the basket to hold the shelves in place.

Now if I had thought ahead I would have stained the wood first but I didn't so I'm using a gel stain that brushes on and wipes off to stain the shelves.

This little shelf would be great for many things.

Hang it on the wall or sit it on a shelf like I did. 

Next it was time to fill my shelves with essential oils

As you can see I use many different kinds of essential oils. 

I recently did a project using doTerra oils and I think they are great!

The bottles are large and the scents are amazing! 

I also made a heart project a while back using lavender that would be awesome scented with lavender essential oils.

I saved a ton of money by making a shelf myself using reclaimed wood and a wire drawer I wasn't using. 

Now I can buy more essential oils!

Look around and see what you have before you shop like this round wall shelf I made using a galvanized tray.
