It’s no surprise that my husband and I love Scandinavian and mid-century design! You’ve heard it all before, I’m sure. We have been slowly filling our home the last couple years with quite a few lovely pieces, like our dresser and Eames Rocker! We’ve been drooling over the amazing shelving units floating around the web, but had a hard time finding anything in our budget. So, we decided to make our own!
It took some planning, but we finally came up with a design that we loved. We wanted the shelving unit to be clean, simple and modern, which I think we achieved. The natural wood and white hardware fit in nicely with the rest of the living room decor.
Our previous floating shelves always felt awkward and the placement was getting too old for me. But it was permanent, there was no way of moving those shelves! What I love the most about our new shelving unit is the versatility we get with the design. We can change the layout at any time, by simply moving the brackets and unlatching the shelf. I am going to have so much fun decorating these shelves, it just feels great having space to display all our little decor pieces! We are still in the process of building modular cabinets to install and add to our shelving unit.
Now that the shelves are up, I am looking for ways to utilize the shelving and wall space. I need some art and a few more colorful pieces to add – what do you think? Be sure to keep an eye out for the tutorial coming soon!
