If you’re looking to do a quick revamp of a room or space, restyling your shelves is a small change that can make a big impact. I collected some shelf decorating ideas from around the internet to give you a little bit of inspiration for styling your own shelves.
We recently acquired an old family hutch from my brother-in-law. After playing a bit of Tetris to figure out where the heck we could fit it, I became obsessive about styling it (because obsessive is kind of my middle name). I’ve been seeing gorgeous shelfies (I love that word, #sorrynotsorry) all over Pinterest and Instagram, but when I go to fill a shelf it usually looks like a hot, unkempt mess no matter how hard I try to be cool and artsy.
So I decided to do what I usually do and get completely lost down the Pinterest rabbit hole. And to make myself feel better about all of the time I lost there, I put together a blog post of some of my favorite shelf decorating ideas so that I could call it “work” and share it with anyone else who hates what their shelves look like.
