Whenever our family travels, we tend to pick up little souvenirs here and there to commemorate our adventures. I like displaying these little trinkets in our living room, either on a shelf or a coffee table. Speaking of shelves, if you’re in need of some living room shelving ideas, then this list is right up your alley!

 Hanging Shelves.

Begin by drilling your board with 2 holes on each side. Gather your cords and loop a knot through the ring. Then, grab one strand, insert it through one of the board’s holes, and tie a knot at the end. Repeat this with remaining strands.

Small Corner Shelves

Don’t let small nooks go to waste by installing these small corner shelves to maximize your storage space. If you’re planning on staining your corner shelves, line the areas around it with strips of tape first. Trust me, your wall will thank you for the extra step.

Leather Strap Hanging Shelf

Love leather? Try this DIY for size. Simply punch holes on either end of your leather straps, and run a hook through the holes. Then, it’s all a matter of placing your wooden board in and putting your items on display.

Floating Corner Shelves

The secret to attaching these floating corner shelves is to place little dowels on one side of the shelves and to drill holes to match on the other side. Doing so will reduce any instances of your shelves moving around.

Honeycomb Shelves.

These honeycomb shelves are not only adorable but its design will also make it easier to add shelves as needed. Remember, the key to getting this DIY right is to mark your miter saw’s angle at 30 degrees, to make those nice honeycomb edges.

-$20 Shelves

You’ll need 2 1×4 pieces of wood and 1 1×2 piece of wood for this DIY. Start by gluing and drilling your 1×4 pieces together, making a right angle form with the 2 pieces. Once you’re done, simply attach the remaining board on the side with the longer width. And that’s it!

Farmhouse Style Shelves


Home Word Shelves

This shelf gives a nice homey (did you see what I just did there?) touch to a living room. Don’t worry too much about the 45-degree angle of the letter M. Simply adjust your miter saw’s setting and you’re all set.
