Okay, so I have to admit, I have A LOT of shoes. I'm not the type to put away my summer shoes during winter, because you never know when you need a pair of flip flops or open-toe heels during the colder months (call me crazy but I don't stick with the close-toe heel rule...if there is one). Because I don't put away my summer shoes, coupled with the fact that I have a ridiculously small closet, it can look like a hot mess with the quickness. My closet is in my son's room, so even if I line my shoes up nicely, he eventually gets in there and messes them up. Hence, my need for a solution!
Our 5 year old Lab, Koby, was having surgery which meant spending several weeks in his crate. Because the crate would be in our main living space, I wanted a functional piece of furniture. After a Google search, I saw on Etsy, storage units with built in pet crates for over $900! I knew I could make one for much less.
This couch was on its way to the tip. I asked the owner if I could take it and she was happy for it to be gone. Because it was free I thought it would be a good project for me to try and see if I could restore it and at the same time see how they are put together. I had never done a couch before so this was my test run.
In some spaces, you just need a little "something" to break up a wall. A floating shelf is the perfect solution. It accents the space, gives you a nice place to display things, and barely takes up any room. This shelf style works well in any home, whether your home's design is modern, rustic, or something in between. is A DIY floating shelf is easier to make than you'd think. Read on.
Using all scrap wood, and with the help of some advice I got from KMS Woodworkers here on Hometalk, I built my own floating shelf. I was thrilled to realize it was as intimidating a project as I thought it was going to be. I didn't make a complete torsion box, but my own 'version' of one. (Gotta love a good DIY improvisation.) I share my tips for cutting a straight line with a jig saw and what I found for the decorative front detail of the shelf in my post, http://www.thespacebetweenblog.net/2012/07/30/how-to-build-a-floating-shelf-tutorial/.
Everyone has special things they would like to keep safe. Hidden even, in some cases. And with reclaimed wood being all the rage these days, I figured I would make a reclaimed wood hidden compartment floating shelf for some friends. It's a mouthfull I know, but it sure was fun to build and use!
I am a big fan of the simplicity and elegance of floating shelves, they add a dynamic design and usefulness to an otherwise bland area. This shelf is not designed to hold a lot of weight but is perfect for pictures, flowers, keys or maybe accent candles.
Raise your hand if you too love the industrial furniture look, but hesitate to purchase due to the $$$ price... I decided to take industrial matters into my own hands and try out a 'faux' idea, utilizing a couple of crates and some rusty junk hardware I had on hand.And the result? 'Real' cool...

When Steph moved into her home four years ago she needed some display shelves for her growing collection of Lego sets. We put up a couple of pre-made shelves using white brackets. They solved the storage problem but were not attractive by any stretch of the imagination. Fast forward a few years; Steph was ready for something a little more stylish to replace them!The step-like design stretches 9 feet long against the wall and is 3 feet high and provides lots of storage for small and large Lego sets.
