How to: Make a DIY Industrial Shelving Unit from Hardware Store Supplies

Nothing beats a stylish DIY project that’s made from easy-to-find supplies from the home improvement center, comes together in an afternoon, and provides extra storage space.   This DIY shelving project from Rachel of A Beautiful Mess satisfies all three, plus, she’s styled it two ways (raw wood and metal, plus this industrial green version), and it’s expandable if you ever wanted to add additional shelves later. Dope.

She says, “My favorite kind of furniture is versatile, so I’m really happy with how this turned out. I can see it being put to work in [my son’s] room someday or repainted white or gold to fit changing tastes down the road. The best part is that it was still more affordable than buying a pre-made steel shelving unit. I love when projects save me money!”
