DIY: Color Block Wooden Shelves

It’s no secret that I’m in love with color, so I’m sure you can imagine my excitement about this DIY color block shelf made from Ikea Prant Boxes, office clamps, and good ole’ fashion paint. They’re so pretty that I can’t think of anywhere in our apartment they wouldn’t look good. What’s the icing on the cake you ask? The fact that it costs less than $100 to make! Oh, yes.

To make your own:

Pick your box  → Paint your color  → Stack  → Clamp

(you can thank me later)

  • Love this idea! Another icing on the cake…you don’t need a truck and a strong friend like you would to get a big bookshelf home!

    Very cute! any ideas for a hidden type of attachment that isn’t permanent?

    • Industrial velcro would be a a sturdy hidden solution, and you could still mix and match shapes

      Maybe you could get binder clips in cute colors too…some office supply and discount stores sell them in colored prints.

    maybe this design can be applied with cardboard boxes.
    i have so many cardboard boxes and almost wanna throw them into trash bin.
    thank you for the inspiration, Ash!

    keep rocking!

    Sadly, these boxes are no longer available at Ikea. Love the look and idea of them!
