There is no need to spend a fortune on a premade shelving unit.  Channel the inner Diva and create your own DIY Shelving Unit for a fraction of the price using IKEA brackets.

This DIY Ikea shelving unit is easy, inexpensive and adorable. It was just what the Double H Ranch needed and a project that I was proud to work on during the Restaurant: Impossible Holiday Impossible Episode. This DIY Ikea shelving unit would look great in a craft space, a child’s room, a playroom or any space where you need a little extra storage. This entire Ikea Shelving Project should only take a few hours to complete, so it’s a great weekend project!

We started with these Ikea shelf brackets. Sorry for the orange spray paint…I got a little ahead of myself 😉

Spray paint each of the brackets with Rustoleum Spray Paint in assorted colors. We then let them dry…..

Decide how wide you want your bookshelf and, using a mitre saw, cut 1″ x 6″ plywood accordingly.

That’s it…all that is left is to decorate it and hide away all the randomness you can find in bins, display your collection or house your child(ren’s) favorite books.

Be sure to check out all the projects that we covered at the Restaurant Impossible Holiday Special at the Double H Ranch.
