Put It On The Shelf
Shelves are a great way to display your most prized possessions, but sometimes an empty shelf can leave a room feeling dull and empty. It's time to do away with boring white shelves and spruce up your home with these ideas! From major to minor upgrades, these all will prove to have an impact on the design aesthetic of the room.
Wrapped Up And Ready To Go
Wrapping paper backing is an easy way to make a bold statement with shelves! It doesn't cost a lot of money and can be changed out for different seasons or holidays. See this DIY project at the Jax and Jewels blog.
Instead of wrapping paper, try wrapping cardboard in fabric for interchangeable backs. This project uses fitted sheets for the fabric and completely transforms the look of the shelving unit!
Crowned The King
Fake a built-in with molding to easily update your space! Crown molding and a fresh coat of paint are the keys to upgrading this unit. See the entire project and step-by-step guide here.
A Perfect Pop
Sometimes a pop of paint can make all the difference! Find a bold hue that accents the room to add depth and color to the shelves.
The Tin Shelf
Ceiling tin backed shelves add sophistication and glam to the unit.
For a more rustic home, pallet backing is a great way to spruce up your shelves. This project requires elbow grease and precision but we just love the results!
If you prefer to take a more subtle approach to interior design, this is the project for you! An arrow stencil and some pastel paint transform this thrift store bookcase into a gorgeous unit for the home.
The Mod Look
A more modern home would pair well with these vertical baseboards backing shelves. A neutral color keeps it looking fresh!
Writings On The Wall
Chalkboard paint seems to have an endless amount of uses! Try painting your backings and shelves in chalkboard paint and use it to help keep the toy room or craft room clean and organized.
Say Goodbye To Basic
These ideas take plain shelves and transform them into focal points in the home. The best part about these ideas are their simplicity! Your shelves will go from boring to fresh in just a few easy steps.
