Move aside floating living room shelves, my husband’s office shelving just won the title of my favorite build ever! I completed modern industrial shelving for my husband’s home office makeover for week 4 of the One Room Challenge. Click to check out the office’s mood board & design plan, the DIY drum chandelier I did last week, and here to see the other participant’s rooms.

I found a tutorial for an IKEA HYLLIS hack on Shine Your Light Blog that I absolutely fell in love with. Her helpful tips outlined everything I needed to know to make these, so just pop over there for the full tutorial.

I also am proud to say I scored the HYLLIS metal shelves when they went on sale at IKEA for only $10 a piece! Then of course, shopping for wood I went with pine, rough sawn on one side to make it cheaper. I couldn’t have made this without Rust-Oleum, my favorite spray paint brand, who graciously sent me a few cans of white and oil-rubbed bronze spray paint to use in this project.

Here is a breakdown of this project’s costs:

    So pretty! I love the look of metal and wood. I might just have to follow your lead and make one of my own, especially since it’s such a big impact for such a reasonable price point.

    Happy last week of ORC!
