Step 7. Hang It Up
Sand the assembled shelf with 120-grit sandpaper and apply a wood stain that complements your space, if desired. Sand the finish unevenly for a distressed texture, or leave the wood unfinished for an industrial look. After choosing the perfect spot for your finished pallet wine shelf, hang it with the aid of your BLACK+DECKER ACCU-MARK™ 36 in. Level.
Drill two holes into the back of the shelf and hold it against the wall with the level flush against the base of the unit. Adjust the shelf until it’s perfectly level, and mark the holes with pencil to indicate where to install your drywall anchors. Remove the shelf and install the anchors. Hang the shelf by screwing through the back of the shelf with 1 1/2" wood screws into the anchors.
Tip: Screw-in type anchors are suitable for a small shelf that holds a few full bottles. If you have a larger shelf, screw into the wall studs and/or use heavy-duty anchors, such as toggle bolts.
