Man… I feel like I’m being stretched so far these days. I haven’t even logged on to do any schooling in over three weeks, and my limits have been far over stepped. But I’ve seen some pretty incredible things in the last month. If you have been reading my past few blogs, you’ll know what I mean.
I hope you don’t feel like I’m complaining. Because I’m not.. I’m loving being stretched by my limits. But because I am, I have less time to blog.
Today I pounded together this pretty ( very simple ) oily shelf so I won’t have to run up and down the stairs every time I want an oil from my other oil shelf. This took literally a few minutes to “build” and a 5 dollar piece of wood.
-Nail Gun ( If you don’t have one you can rent them at Home Depot or Similar Hardware Stores )
Now, when I say that this is literally the easiest thing ever, it is. You don’t have to know how to build to make this 5 dollar essential oil shelf. All you need is to measure properly and you’re good to go.
I made my shelf extra large as I have a ton of oils and I wanted to have a lot of storage so these are my measurements.
It’s 24″ Tall x 18″ Wide x 6″ Deep
I think this is all pretty self explanatory, but I’ll explain how to build it. You want to measure the 4 shelves equal width’s apart. Mark it off and then nail. You’re good to go.
Give a light sand & load up with your favourite oils!
That’s it folks. No screwing, staining or varnishing ( unless you want ).
Isn’t it so pretty? I have another oil shelf downstairs, but it’s in my laundry room and never seen by me or anyone else. This way I can stare at my pretty bottles all day long!
Funny Story.. or not so funny.
So I made this super quick little oily shelf for my office because I get tired of running down the stairs all the time to get oils from my other oily shelf.
Anyways.. I was putting my shelf up, totally in heaven mode, huge smile on my face and then I run to the bathroom, like, real quick to pee. I was literally in there for a minute. While I’m in there I hear a little girl voice giggling in the next room ( I was in my ensuite ) and Brinley had thrown my iPhone in a cup of water at my desk…
I quickly grabbed it out and tried to dry it off, but the screen already went all weird and it went black.
So… long story short, I grabbed my “Joy” oil and doused my whole upper body. Literally..
Man… can the “terrible twos” be over someday soon? Until then… Joy EO for the win.
Let me know what you think of my 5 dollar essential oil shelf. I always love to hear from y’all!
