How To Make Shelving Units Pretty



How To Make Shelving Units Pretty – Hey everyone, so I know that this hasn’t got anything to do with fashion or beauty BUT I do have a lifestyle / home decor section on the blog so I thought this would be something that you’re all interested in – especially when it comes to storage!

As a lot of you know, I’m a fan of IKEA – not only for their lovely candles and decorative vases but they have such a variety, I easily spend a couple of hours just browsing through all the items!

Being a beauty and fashion blogger means that I’m lucky enough to receive a lot of items to test, review and feature on the blog however things do take up space and after spotting this picture online, I thought of a great way to make my IKEA shelving units a lot prettier!

How To Make Your Shelving Units Pretty – Where To Buy

The main place that I’d recommend checking out is IKEA, things are affordable, good quality and you can really get creative with things too!

I have these shelving units from IKEA and I love them (they’re at an even better price now) – I’ve got a couple of pretty boxes lined along the bottom half and the other half I use for stacking boxes / bulky products!

The next shelving unit I’ll be buying will be this 16 box shelving unit – again from IKEA as I need more storage!

How To Make Your Shelving Unit Pretty – Cover The Back

OK, so as you all know, these are see-through….there’s no backing on them making them handy – especially if used as an office-divider!

However if you’ve got these shelving units just lined up against a wall then you can really have fun by lining the back with a thin piece of wood which has been decorated with a piece of colourful material, a quirky design or even painted with a colour of your choice – if you’re using these just for decorative furniture you could try a thicker piece of paper for a touch of colour!

This will really lift any room – it’ll add a touch of vibrancy and you’ve created something unique for your room without much hassle!

It’s simple things that count and I’ve seen so many great tutorials about how to re-design and change IKEA furniture….in the end, it’s all about having fun and enjoying the process! 🙂

I’d love to know what you all think – is this something that you could possibly try?? What do you use for storing your products?

Let me know! 🙂
