Pizza Peel Wall Shelf
Oh boy do I have a thing for pizza peels!I have been on the hunt for one and found this large pizza peel just in time for my favorite bloggers to put together a Thrift Store Decor Bog Hop! I originally wanted to paint it but the kitchen “EAT” signs are a bit overused these days. So searching around for ideas I found a Pizza Peel Wall shelf by Pottery Barn and also Joss & Main.
Well it just so happened I had a matching piece of scrap wood for the shelf, matching stain and leather. All I had to buy were the hooks and they were a whopping $2 each. This is such a fun easy project, let me show you how to make one~
Pizza Peel Wall Shelf
- Pizza Peel
- Wood Scrap 2.5 x 18 x .5 inch
- Miniwax Red Oak Stain
- Gorilla Wood glue
- E600 Adhesive
- Leather cording
- Frame back hardware
Clean your pizza peel and remove any adhesive or oils. Sand down the edges or rough areas.
Measure the scrap wood on the pizza peel to cut the shelf. My peel had beveled edges, I made my shelf 1/2 inch shorter on each side, than the width of pizza peel. This was the shelf will lay flush against the wood.
Cut the wood for shelf with a hand saw. Cut a square out the left over wood the same width of the shelf. Cut the square diagonal in half into two triangles. These are your brackets for underneath the shelf. Sand all the pieces and make sure the all fit together seamlessly. If not sand the wood again until everything fits.
Stain all pieces using a rag. Let the wood stain completely dry overnight. Seal the stain if you choose. I left mine alone and the finish looked great.
Glue all pieces to the peel using wood glue. If you feel your shelf is not sturdy enough, you can add two wood screws through the back side of the peel through the shelf. The glue was very sturdy on my peel so I opted to skip this step.
Add your hooks to the front center of the shelf using E6000 adhesive, not wood screws. This pizza peel was so thin I was afraid the wood would split when screwing in the screws. Plus the screws with the hooks were way too long and would stand out in the back of the peel.
I added the hanging hardware to the pack of the peel so it will hang level and not move. I used E6000 to adhere the hardware as well.
Lastly add a small piece of leather to the handle and that’s it! I’m in love! This would make such an interesting piece of wall art for your kitchen, rustic dining room or a fun coffee station.
Now for more Thrift Store Makeovers!
I’m so excited to bring you this Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge! I’ve teamed up with 20 of my favorite bloggers for this Thrift Store Blog Hop. The rules were simple–take an item(s) from a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. and transform it into a new piece of home decor. There was no budget, or theme to stick to so we were free to let our creativity run wild!
