We often struggle with lack of space when it comes to storage. Those cupboards and closets never seem enough when it comes to keeping your stuff well-managed and easy to reach. Wall shelves not only enhance the decoration around the house, but also make the most of the existing spaces. Here are 18 breathtakingly beautiful DIY shelves that you can put together at home.
1. How to Add DIY Shelves in a Closet
Increasing the storage space in an existing closet is just a matter of adding new DIY shelves. Some melamine shelves can go for the storage, while iron-on melamine edging brings the finesse to the additions. The other supplies you are going to need include some wood for cleats, a few drywall screws, a cordless drill, a measuring tape, and level.

2. DIY Faux Floating Shelves
Floating shelves are perhaps, the simplest and most handy way to use some vertical space. And this inspiration by Mommy Suite is a wonderful example of the same, constructed out of wooden boards cut to your desired length. The corner braces for the shelves are coated with black paint, while a special minwax walnut stain brightens up the wood.

4. DIY Industrial Pipe Shelves
The industrial part about these shelves is of course, those pipe bases underneath the wooden shelf boards.

5. Corner Floating Shelves
How can we make the most of even the edges of the room? The answer is simple corner floating shelves – the key is to cut a board in a triangular fashion so that it rightly aligns with two walls, preparing wooden strips for support to the shelf and heading to the assembly with a same-sized bottom board. Leave the shelves with their natural texture or splash some stain.

6. DIY Farmhouse Shelves
The brackets used to hold the shelves in place are definitely the focal point of this inspiration. And the vintage design of the fun faux shelf brackets with a lovely weathered paint job are themselves, extraordinary when it comes to design. Some screws come handy in hanging the shelves on the wall, making them as thin or large as it suits your space.
