Materials Needed:

  • 5' section of 1/2" conduit pipe (common size in home improvement stores)
  • 61" vinyl gutter
  • 8"x1"x6' board, pine or oak (at least 73 inches long)
  • 1"x2"x6' board, pine or oak (at least 61" long)
  • miter box with saw
  • set of wooden closet-bar brackets
  • (8) 1" metal O-rings
  • (8) 1/4" S-hooks
  • (26) 5/8" wood or craft screws
  • (6) 1 1/2" wood screws
  • wood putty
  • sandpaper
  • 4 finishing nails
  • stain and varnish or polyurethane
  • paintbrush
  • drill with small drill bit
  • permanent marker
  • tape measure
  • wood glue
  • large D-rings for hanging
  • wall-mount anchors, if necessary

Prep Gutter and Wood Boards

If necessary, cut vinyl gutter and 1x2x6 board to 61 inches (Images 1 and 2). Cut 8x1x6 board into three sections: one at 63 inches long and the other two at five inches long. Stain the wood boards as desired.

Drill Pilot Holes in Gutter

Use a tape measure to find the gutter's center (should be 30-1/2") and mark it with the permanent marker about 1/2" from the top (Image 1). Make a similar mark every five inches in both directions from the center. Drill holes at all of the marked spots with a drill bit just big enough to create a pilot hole for the small wood or craft screws to avoid cracking the gutter (Image 2).

Attach Gutter to Boards

Using the pre-drilled holes as your guide, center then attach the gutter to the 8x1x6 board using wood or craft screws (this will form the shelf's back side). Note: The top edge of the gutter should be flush with one long edge of the board with 1 1/2" of board extending beyond both ends of the gutter.
