3 DIY Shelve Tutorials to Organize Your Space

by ·

Shelving is one of those critical design elements in a space. Properly utilizing shelves makes a room feel more collected and homey. It lets you proudly display all of your found treasures. Built-in shelves are a highly coveted design feature to most; unfortunately, it can be quite hard to add them to a completed space. But don’t worry, I’m going to show you a few of my favorite bookshelves that can be built and installed in one weekend.

Of course we have to kick off this roundup with these industrial pipe shelves by Morgan @ The Brick House. I am pretty sure these shelves single handedly state the industrial movement in design. They are AMAZING.

Emily took an old book shelf and lined the back with some remnant fabric that she had stashed. I love this idea because you can personalize it to any space, and it’s removable!

I love projects that not only make a space prettier by just being there, but also actually fix something that is on the ugly list. My friend Hailee had a giant picture window between her kitchen and living room. I mean, how exactly are you supposed to decorate that?! So with a few hours and $30 we made it an open built in – it is still one of my favorite DIY’s to date.

Anyone feeling inspired to tackle one of these projects?
