Aly from Entirely Eventful Day wanted a beautiful weathered wood étagère from Restoration Hardware for her master bathroom. The problem? She didn’t have $700 to purchase it. What Aly did have was an old, metal, over-the-toilet shelving system. Aly refabbed the shelf with a fresh coat of glossy white paint and some wood to give [...Read More]
Heather from Sweet Number 9 immediately fell in love with a distressed wall ledge from Pottery Barn the moment she saw it. It was exactly what she needed to fill empty wall space that had been driving her crazy. Heather and her husband devised a plan to build their own shelf with some lumber and decorative molding. Their knock off is absolutely stunning and has become an immediate statement piece on the once annoyingly blank wall!
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.
Michelle from Chalkboard Blue built this cubby system inspired by a hotel front desk organizer that is perfect for storage and display. The original inspiration came from a cubby organizer from Pottery Barn, but Michelle put her own spin on the design. She most recently used the cubbies as an advent calendar countdown to Christmas and loved how it came out!
In need of storage for her craft space, Jeanette from Homa Style created a revolving shelf that has room to spare. Jeanette added her own flair by gluing various styles of trim to the top and bottom. I love how accessible everything is with this design. Instead of searching around in a cabinet or drawer, just give it a spin and craft away!
Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust built this standing bookshelf for a friend who was expecting her first baby. Along with saving some green, Kristen was able to customize the size of the shelf to fit the nursery. I love how this style of shelf shows the fronts of the books instead of the spines. Why [...Read More]
Linda from burlap+blue stumbled upon a decorative ledge that was the perfect way to add some visual interest to her dining room wall. She enlisted the help of her husband to construct her own beautifully distressed ledge from some pine boards and molding. I actually love both the length and finish of Linda’s ledge better [...Read More]
Melissa from Habitat loves CB2 and their modern pieces. A bookcase with an open structure recently caught her eye, and although she loved the look, she sure wasn’t about to drop $500 on a shelf. Instead, she committed a weekend and $100 to build her own spitting image. This eye-catching, architectural shelf has a whole [...Read More]
