One Review at a Time: DIY Studio Shelves

Part of remolding my studio earlier this year involved putting in new shelves. I wanted a space to keep all my skulls, weird references, and toys. I wanted white shelves to go with the neutral gray of the room, but found that I could spice it up a bit by using fancy wall mounts to hold the shelves. Here’s what I learned…

The cheapest place I found wood shelf planks was at Lowe’s:


Just pick whatever size works best for you!

The fancy wall mounts I found at Hobby Lobby. Remember every other week their hardware goes on sale for 50% off, so if they’re not on sale, just wait a week!


Once I measured everything, selected the size planks I needed and the wall mounts I wanted, I installed everything in my studio. I’m happy with the results!
