When Jen from Lavender Sundays needed to re-vamp her kitchen with some shelves, she started searching the internet for the perfect rustic look. She found a set of shelves at Restoration Hardware that she adored, but each one retailed for $200-$400. For the seven shelves Jen needed, she would have had to shell out over […Read More]

You may remember the DIY potting bench I shared a few weeks ago that marked Susan from Between Naps on the Porch’s debut in the world of woodworking. Well, Susan is back with another build – a cubby organizer that she built for her office following plans from Ana White. Susan encountered a few bumps along the way and shares everything she learned for those of you who want to build your own. With a savings of over $100 from the Pottery Barn inspiration, Susan says she can “see why this building stuff is so addictive!”
Steph from Newlywed Nesters took a friend’s recommendation to try out Shanty 2 Chic’s “shelves anyone can build” with plans from Ana White. As promised, the project was simple and inexpensive! Steph ended up building four three-foot ledges, which would have run her $45 dollars a piece at good old Pottery Barn. Thank goodness for DIY! Steph says the best part is that the shelves allow her to rearrange to her heart’s content without having to patch holes and rehang frames.
After building a small ledge for her bathroom, Laura from I’m Not A Trophy Wife knew she wanted a larger, chunkier version for above her bed and came up with some plans to build her own. This is a fabulous alternative to a mantel if you don’t have one and can even make a statement above a bed as a headboard. With the trim detail and distressed finish, it’s full of character and provides plenty of space for decorating.
If you bemoan the fact that you don’t have a mantel and, therefore, a place displaying for cutesy holiday vignettes, you’ve got to check out these shelves from Mallory at Classy Clutter! Mallory built simple wall shelves by adding trim and corbels to a MDF board. These look great clustered together, so you can customize the number and size of your shelves to meet your space and decorative needs. Doesn’t Mallory’s suh-weet Valentine’s display make you want to build one right now!?!
