Built-in shelves add a lot of character to a room. And they’re not too difficult to make. I love this DIY shelving from Marie Claire Id?©es.
You could easily create a version of this using LACK shelves from IKEA. These versatile shelves come in 12″, 43″, 48″ and 75″ lengths. If you don’t like the color, simply paint them in one you love. Notice the piece of decorative paper in the shelves shown here. That’s a nice touch, don’t you think?
To make these shelves you’ll need a metal L-square and a level to make sure your angles are at 90 degrees. Work your design out on paper before you start.
