Building Your Own Shelves

Sunday, June 1, 2014


As you know, there is an entire page on the iDesigns blog dedicated to DIY Designs! Plus, I have a shelf that I built with my Grandpa in my bedroom. So of course, I am a big fan of doing things yourself. Specifically talking about my shelf, I got the inspiration from a model home headboard. When I determined that it wouldn’t work in my bedroom, I changed it to a shelf, and it eventually morphed into the shelf in the photo below! 
So basically the message that I’m trying to get across is this: Try to build your own! Chances are, it will turn out better than anything you could have bought! This shelf also is unique because the metal brackets and painted white wood are mixed together to create a classic, yet contemporary look. In my room, I have done quite a few DIY projects…
  • custom-built shelf
  • custom-built bookshelves
  • four handsewn pillows
  • handcrafted quote collage on bulletin board
  • three DIY canvas art pieces
And I’m sure that I will be able to add more to that list soon :)
