Notice the picture in the black photo frame? Our thanks again to Abby Cook for taking some great family shots for us!

If you recall the former living room shelves got moved to our son’s room which left a need for book storage and such in the living room. We loved the industrial-look of Restoration Hardware’s Dutch Shipyard Shelving. But we REALLY didn’t love the insane price tag of $2295 each U.S. – especially since we needed two of them for a total of $4590! Ack!

So we did what we always do in this situation – we DIY’d ourselves some shelves!

We will post the DIY how-to for you as soon as we can, k. But for now, what do you think of our vintage industrial shelves?

UPDATE: Our DIY instructions and tutorial are here.

I'd love it if you'd share:

      Ha! Yes, I do! They have a great bread basket too that looks a bit like a trencher for around $10.

    Nothing short of AMAZING!!!

    I just want my 100 year old house to be furnished & decorated by Shannon & Dean Designs.

    I can’t wait to hear what your cost was to make them.

      Hi Natasha! I bought the crock several years back at an antique barn sort of place in Barrie, Ontario. It has a crack in it, but if I recall correctly it was about $25 CAD. it currently holds the tv and wii remotes.

    Wow, those are AMAZING!!!! Brilliant job. They would go so well in almost any style of space. I can’t wait for the DIY instructions- I’m going to be trying those out!

    Also love the tins with the numbers. Did you make those too?
