Much more than just a storage solution, self-build shelves, or shelfies,’make a great housewarming gift, or a quick a style update to suit your space. They can be adjusted to any size, shape or colour palette, so scroll down and see which shelving projects we’re dying to try DIYing?at home.

1. Rope shelf
The beauty of this shelf is that the height is up to you, so be sure to think about how best to show off your favourite prints, books or plants. If nautical is your thing, then incorporating a splash of brass in the hooks or add thin pieces of piping to line the rope.

2. Wood and leather suspended shelf
For a luxe style update, why not try strips of leather to rest your shelf upon??Simple but very effective. We love this wood and leather suspended shelf by Claire Zinnecker for Camille Styles blog, adding a pop of gold along the rim give a finished look and glam feel. Upcycling options are endless, with old belts and reconditioned wooden furniture all worthy alternatives.

3. Scandinavian-style shelving
If you’re feeling more ambitious, why not try a DIY shelving unit? This Scandi-inspired piece is just the job to show off any diningware or collectables you have to hand. We love the combination of light wood and clean white, but don’t be afraid to experiment with colour to mix and match with your surroundings and belongings.
