Carissa of Carissa Miss finished off her son’s nursery with a set of custom shelves above the changing table. Thanks to metal brackets from IKEA and a wood board from the home improvement store she was able to do it at a fraction of the cost of her West Elm inspiration. I love the combo of the rustic wood-stained shelf and glitzy metallic brackets and can’t think of a room (or even an entryway) where these wouldn’t add style and function!

As soon as Amanda from Mommy is Coocoo had a daughter she knew she wanted her to have a dollhouse. She loved the versatility of a bookshelf/dollhouse since her daughter may not want to play with dolls forever but would, of course, always have toys and books in need of storage. Amanda was able to create her own from a secondhand wooden dollhouse in need of a little love.

When decorating a tiny bathroom, there is only so much storage and decorating space. Greg and Ashley from Seventh House on the Left solved this dilemma while renovating their half bath by adding shelving above the toilet. They opted for a Restoration Hardware-inspired wood and metal combination, using worn boards for the shelves and pipe for the brackets. Here’s what they have to say about their new shelves: “The shelves really help balance out the vanity wall on the opposite side, and we’re thrilled to have some storage to be able to showcase some pretty things.”

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic had an empty space between the couch and window in her living room that she was always struggling to fill. The answer? An open bookshelf design from Ana White that would provide the needed height without blocking the natural light. Whitney again busted out her power tools to whip up this bad boy for under $100. That’s $700 less than her Pottery Barn inspiration!
