If you need to put in new shelving somewhere in your house, what do you do? I used to go out and buy shelves, but that isn’t always the best solution. Sometimes you need to space your shelves out in such a way that you’d do better with some kind of free-floating solution. Lately I’ve been thinking about putting in some new shelves in my home. I’m tired of the clutter that I’ve got everywhere, and a few additional shelves would give some objects a better home and get them out of the way.
So originally I was thinking about something from this list of 40 DIY shelf projects. But nothing was quite what I was looking for, because some of the wall space I have to utilize is a little cramped. Plus I want to be able to space the shelves unevenly, because some will hold taller objects and others will hold shorter objects. These invisible bookshelves were worth a thought, but not quite the style I wanted. So it was right back to searching …
But then I found exactly what I was looking for in these rustic floating shelves from Shanty2Chic!
