Industrial/metal shelves

With a DIY project in mind (which, by the way, is so simple but that I've been procastinating for a month or so) I am going to show you some inspiration photos I found. I am showing you here some preety fantastic ways to incorporate industrial shelves into a not-so-industrial house.

.....airy/ dreamy/ soft in the living room ...

...collected look...

... black and glass...

... as book storage...

... for the kitchen...

.... just gorgeous dining room storage ... the bathroom...

... in the family room...

... love them paired with a crystal chandelier...

Aren't these industrial shelves just great? Sure, metal can be cold but paired with wood or other organic materials it really stands out and goes well with any style, if styled correctly! I am planning to have some of these shelves for the kitchen, and I will paint them gold, as my black and white kitchen with steel accents is in need of some gold love. Paired with my orbital pendant that is still to come, it'll look great!!

... love them in gold!!

What say you? Do you like metal shelves?? Do share!!

  1. I love the look, ever since I saw The Brick House build some shelves out of plumbing pipe and wood. I (very stupidly) passed up a huge industrial shelf on clearance recently, and I've been kicking myself ever since. Have you seen the pictures of these shelves?

  2. I love them, and plan on incorporating them into my next kitchen. Can't wait to see what you do.

    1. I ll be using them in the kitchen also!! xo

  3. Metal shelves add a great edgy look to a space no matter what the furnishing style. If done right it can really look amazing. The examples you found are sooo good! I give metal shelving a big thumbs up!!

    Have a great weekend! Blessings, Edie Marie
