DIY with DollybyDesign: EASY shelf

DIY with DollybyDesign: EASY shelf

Hello all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a DIY with DBD so I thought it would be fun to do a post about a shelf, that I made with my mom, for my living room. Since there was such an awkward empty space above my TV & stand, I wanted to do something homemade to make the space more “homey//comforting”

Anyway, here is the website that I used as a reference for step-by-step directions and it was VERY helpful & EASY (since I am just now beginning to learn how to build things for my home!) Please NOTE: it states that it would only take $10 to build this shelf…that is incredibly FALSE! You, the builder, will most likely have to purchase ALL the materials for the first time (b/c most likely you won’t have paint//brushes//supplies sitting around your house) and it will be around $60-$70 for the supplies! So keep that in mind, but if you plan on building more than one shelf, it will be cheaper the next time you build one! 

Here is the website for step-by-step directions:

And for those of you who would like to see my new shelf above my TV, here are some pictures from start to finish (taken with my iPhone 5s, so please don’t judge the picture quality too much!)

I also placed my DIY Chalkboard above this shelf, here is the link for how to make one yourself: DIY Chalkboard 

Once again, thank you so much for reading and for your constant support! If you would like for me to make you a shelf, message me at: (they are actually ALOT of fun to make)!

Have a Blessed and Happy Saturday!

Love, DollybyDesign 🙂
