Upside Hanger Side Table
You will need:
4 wooden hangers
Paint (I used
chalk paint, but PVA or oilbased will also do)
2x wooden planks 47 x 30cm
I am a big fan of upcycling and repurposing, hence I never throw
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.
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.
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.
