30+ Great Shelving Ideas!

Round Up- Shelving




Since I just posted about my free shelves last week… I thought I’d kick this week off with a collection of my favorite shelf ideas!  You’ll find an assortment of DIY shelves, ideas on how to style shelves, and more!


Free EASY DIY gallery shelves - DIYinRealLife.com




 Shanty 2 Chic did these shelves! These are super similar to my shelves… I love the stained wood look though too!


Tidbits from the Tremayne’s did a whole wall of gallery shelves… Kinda totally digging it!


And what would a shelving post  be without a pallet shelf in there somewhere? 🙂

Amanda Carver Designs did this one and I’m loving the weathered look to it!


Belle Maison did a tutorial on how to style shelves…  Which is awesome cause I totally just throw things up there and move them and move them and move them till it looks right to me! 😉


I like this post from Sawdust Girl for 2 reasons…  First it’s about styling bookshelves… Secondly it’s full of delicious eye-candy!  Lovin’ the pattern on the back of these shelves!



This was a Pinterest thing but the link is broken… Which is sad.  But awesome inspiration, no??


Gail’s Decorative Touch did this shelf.  So. Much. To. Look. At.

The shelf itself is awesome… Styling is even better… Yum!!!

There’s so much about this room I love but check out those shelves in the back corner!  Mmmmmm~ Love!!!


Saw this on Houzz… You know how I diiiiiiig the slight industrial look!  Mmmmhmmmm!!!!

ShelvingIdeas11The girls at Beautiful Mess did this ladder shelf.  Not sure what I love more?  The concept of it or the happy yellow color they chose! 🙂 lol!


Better Homes and Gardens did an article on using baskets… But I’m just liking the styling of the shelves in this picture.


Check out this shelf from Ballard Designs…. YUM!


Luuuuuuuving these built-in’s that Thrifty Decor Chick did!  She used upper cabinets for the bases (similar to what we did with Emily’s Coffee Bar) and I’m liking them oodles!  Takes up less floor space and just looks more custom!


Sylvie Liv did these shelves and…. Yeah… Industrial love.


Jenna at SAS Interiors did an awesome tutorial… Gotta check this one out!!


Home Stories A to Z also did a tutorial on styling shelves… I love how she shows where she got all her accessories and I LOVE her creativity in where she found some of them!!!  Spray painted pet store coral?  Ummm…. Can you say genius??  Never would have thought of that!


You can buy this shelf from Cottage Chic Store, but it looks like something you could DIY too with a little work!



Totally digging the use of 2 corbels and a simple 2x!


I know, I know… Overkill on the industrial shelves in this post…  But this shelf from A Keen Life is awesome!


Our Vintage Home Love did this reclaimed lumber shelving (It’s a Restoration Hardware hack) Be still my heart.


A Pinterest find with no source.  Sad. But isn’t this a unique idea??!


Rope shelves?  Fun idea!!!


A Little Glass Box showed off her brilliant idea… Put foam board with wallpaper on back of bookshelf… That way you can change out when you get bored.


Organizing Junkie did a tutorial on organizing open shelves in the kitchen.  And yes. I AM in fact drooling over those shelves.  😉


Remodelando La Casa showed off her awesome built-in cabinets in her bedroom.  Love the bright white and super classy look!


Loving this Pottery Barn inspiration photo I found on Pinterest!  I like how they use the various wicker baskets. Great idea to hold cd’s, dvd’s, etc.


Liking these floating shelves from Thrifty Decor Chick!


This isn’t directly shelf-related but it does help with styling them!


I *LOVE* this!  I mean I’ve seen all manners of consoles, built-in cabinets, etc for TV/Media Centers, but this is new!  And I love it!   Life Thru a Linds showed how she did it!


One word.  Drool.

Vale Designs showed off their before and after…  Gorgeous!

Hope you’ve been as inspired as I have been!

Now go out and do some SHELVES!!!! 🙂
