DIY Dollar Tree 2 Tier Shelves: Rustic Farmhouse Storage

If you want to inexpensively add more storage to your kitchen or bathroom, these easy Dollar Tree 2-Tier Shelves are the perfect way to do it! The simply rustic farmhouse decor is so easy to make. And it costs just $4 for the entire shelving system!

I use these shelves for lightweight items that I want to display on a countertop. Guest towels and washcloths are the perfect things to display in these storage shelves.

This would also be great to store K-cups and coffee bar items!

Why not make some of these mini felt succulent pots to tuck into the shelves, too? They are super cute with a free pattern!

How to Make Rustic 2 Tier Shelves from the Dollar Tree


  • 2 Dollar Tree wooden rectangle boxes
  • 2 Dollar Tree Metal Garden Hooks (S-Shape)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Cup and Some Water


Step 1

Add a few drops of paint into some water in the cup. Mix thoroughly. This will create a light stain. You can go as dark or as light as you’d like. I’d suggest starting with 1/2 cup of water and 4-8 drops of paint and alter according to the color that you’d like.

Step 2

Paint both boxes with the stain mixture. Allow to dry thoroughly (about 20 minutes).

Step 3

Glue the boxes to the two S hooks. You will need to play around with the placement. Glue the small end of the S hook to the top box. Hot glue along the side of the box where the S hook will be, then press the hook into the glue carefully and apply pressure until it stays.

Now, apply glue on the bottom shelf where the larger curve of the S hook will be. Again, apply pressure carefully until it sticks. Repeat on the opposite side.

Allow to dry completely before putting any weight in the shelves.
