Industrial farmhouse reclaimed wood and pipe pantry shelf sign
If you were to ask me what my dream pantry would look like, I envision this walk in type of bright white room, housed with reclaimed wood pipe shelves from floor to ceiling. Complete with a repurposed screen door, with a quaint PANTRY sign.
Since I don’t have space for that dreamy pantry concept, I DO have space for the look and feel on a smaller scale… with a funky industrial farmhouse shelf made from reclaimed wood and pipes.
And you can bet a pantry sign came along for the ride!
Does this shelf look a little familiar to you? I just showcased another way to display it in my revamped for fall front entry HERE.
But this version was the original I stole it from, piece by piece. THIEF with a reason. 🙂
Pantry is one of the most requested stencil designs we receive, so it was time to bring it to life!
The Pantry design is bold, yet timeless. Upper and lower case letters add a logo effect, and it’s sized perfectly to fit on pantry door areas.
And this shelf project was a super fun, EASY project to whip up!
Of course it could be used for anything. Think kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, outdoors, front entry… but here it’s decked out to pantry-fy your life.
Here’s how I made it…

reclaimed wood and pipe pantry shelf sign
Supplies I used:
1. Cut three planks to the same length, then give them a light sand.
Note: the top plank shelf will need to be a little deeper (front to back) than the lower two boards so the pipe fittings fit. (see 2nd picture above for an example, tutorial is HERE)
2. Gather up the appropriate pipe fittings as shown. Dry-fit to ensure the top plank fits.
I used 3/4″ fittings. These were purchased brand new at the local hardware store.
Stenciling the Pantry sign
3. Position the Pantry stencil where desired, then masking tape into place.
Tap the brush up and down across the stencil, walking your fingers along to hold each area in place while painting.
I used Fusion Mineral Paint’s Coal Black for my paint of choice. It dries so quickly, and leaves the perfect crate effect imprint on reclaimed wood!

5. Once paint has had a chance to cure, lightly sand to distress, if desired.
6. Dry fit the top shelf to help position the pipe fittings, then attach the pipe bases to the sign plank with short screws. Then attach the top shelf board to the tops of the pipe fittings.
Add the hooks
7. Apply random hooks along the bottom, and you are done!
Just for fun, I bounced the hook positions so the reclaimed wood pantry shelf sign would be a little more unique!
8. Install was easy, everything was just screwed directly into the wall, one board at a time. But be sure to check out how I installed the shelf, and revamped it to suit my entry HERE.
If you plan to add weight to the shelf, I would suggest to anchor the screws.
The finished pantry shelf sign!
Isn’t it the cutest?!
I love the functionality of the pantry shelf sign, yet it’s decorative as well!
It would make the perfect kitchen decorating accessory, don’t you think? Hang up aprons, pots and pans… etc!
Random or straight hooks?
I personally love the randomly placed hooks. It makes your things bounce around like they’re having one big happy pantry party, all beating to their own drum. Weekend party hooks!
But evenly spaced, aligned hooks would also look very smart, like they know what they’re doing. Big biz all the way. Office hooks?
Boy, this would make one sweet coffee shelf with one of the coffee stencils HERE.
Here’s how to add a little pre-made cupboard to the mix. Add planks along the top to extend the surface, and casters on the bottom, for easy moving and more of an antique look.
This fun project just about makes me think I could rebuild my entire kitchen with this look!
