New DIY Open Shelving for a Home Office


The Engineer and I have been building a home office from scratch in our third bedroom.

This custom open shelving gives us a place to display pretty baskets that store items out of sigh, but still look great! We

We designed the entire shelving system around these baskets to make sure they would fit, instead of building first and then having trouble finding baskets in the size we needed.

Each piece was custom cut using a guide board method in the absence of a table saw.

After pre-painted the shelves, we used our nail gun and they went up really fast.

Wood putty, caulk, and a final coat of paint polished these shelves off nicely! I store envelopes and stationary, The Engineer's pilot books, and craft supplies in these baskets and they work like a dream!
