By now you’re aware: We have a little obsession with DIY projects. And there might not be anything better and more useful to do with free time than to make your home look dope (while getting organized). We’ve given you ideas to make your shelves pop, and we’ve even shown you our favorite bookshelves. But today, we’re taking it a step further and showing you 12 DIY shelves that you can totally do yourself.
