DIY Farmhouse Style, Industrial Shelving August 18, 2017 10:10

We are loving the look of industrial farmhouse shelving! You can tackle this DIY project for just about any size space using and old piece of scrap wood or new wood. These character rich shelves add a functional but stylish display area while keeping an open feel to your space. You can check out some of our industrial inspirations on Pinterest!

There is a fun shelving idea for every room in your home from creating displays above toilets, little boys bedrooms, gallery walls, pantries & more! You don't have to stick to just shelves either! You create anything from towel bars, coat racks and lighting from a few pieces of piping picked up from your local hardware store.

Now for the nitty gritty of the project.

We always recommend finding studs prior to hanging any shelf. I love my stud finder & level (I much prefer a laser level because it has a longer reach). Keep in mind, for current homes the studs are usually 16” apart, if you have an older home it may vary.

You can watch our video tutorial for the step by step guide to installing your own industrial shelving.
