A basic skateboard deck is refashioned into a beautifully sleek shelf with this simple DIY craft. The project requires minimal materials, as well as time, despite its gorgeous aesthetics.

The only materials needed to create this DIY shelf are a wooden skateboard deck and some rope. The creator of this DIY project, Geneva Vanderzeil, uses a white rope and a bare board while a colorful deck or rope is just as functional.

Stringing the rope through the holes already embedded within the deck, this DIY shelf is nearly complete. Once the rope has been strung through the holes on both sides of the skateboard deck, the DIY shelf is complete and creators can fasten the hanging shelf wherever they see it fit. This upcycled design project is not only ideal for budget-conscious design fans but is also eco-friendly to boot.
