I wanted something quick and easy to display or hold magazines or blankets. I used two 3x5x8, cut the bottom at 5 degrees and the top that leans against the wall at 85 degrees. You don't have to do this, but I liked the look. Last, I drilled 8 holes at 1 1/4" diameter to fit 1 1/4" dowel cut in inch increments: 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11. I used a brad nailer to hold the dowels in place from behind.

Estimated Cost
$30.00 - the dowels are the most expensive.
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Type of Wood
Stud material
Finish Used
Old flat wall green/blue.
