Unusual DIY Shelves


There are so many things that can be repurposed as shelves for your walls. I bet you could head out to your garage or basement and find something that would work. 

Let's see how these clever people did it...


An old soda box gives a touch of nostalgia to your walls.


A hanging antique basket holds linens.


Love the repurposed cheese box shelf!


Ladders aren't just for climbing.

Another old tool box, this time turned on its side.


Game boards turned shelves. This would look great in a child's room.

This makes me want to go digging through my stuff!

    My favorite are the tool boxes. Ingenious IMO. I'll have to be on the lookout for one now.

  6. I like the good old Coca-Cola crate best. I love the charming mix of plants and containers in colors that go well with the color of the crate wthout being too matchy-matchy. I'm going to share the gameboard idea with my daughter. I think she'd like to do something like that in her new apartment. Thanks.

  8. I love every idea here, Brenda! Wish I had all those colorful suitcases to make a wall of shelves, but would I really have the nerve to cut them up? Probably not....
