Nailed It

Upside Hanger Side Table

Upside Hanger Side Table

You will need:
4 wooden hangers
12 screws
Paint brushes
Paint (I used chalk paint, but PVA or oilbased will also do)
Builder’s hook
Glazecoat (optional)
Spirit level
2x wooden planks 47 x 30cm

I am a big fan of upcycling and repurposing, hence I never throw anything away!

1. Clean the wooden planks with a damp cloth to get rid of any dust.
Paint two coats on both sides, making sure it
dries between coats.

2. Apply a layer of Glazecoat (I prefer to include this step, especially with PVA or Chalk paint, to protect the surface).

3. If you are using Supawood, pre-drill holes for the screws to prevent it from splitting.
Attach the hangers to the planks (you will need an extra pair of hands here!)
I used a spirit level and builder’s hook to ensure the shelves are level and at a 90° angle.

Final Result
Keep in mind that this is not a very strong table, so refrain from putting heavy objects on it.

Since I love upcycling, I made jewellery storage from the hooks I removed from the hangers, using the off cuts from the shelves.

Follow Steps 1 and 2 for painting, measure the distance for the hooks, drill small holes and insert the hooks with No More Nails glue.
