How to DIY Floating Shelves on a Budget! || DIY and Decorate With Me

Hey everyone! Today’s blogpost is a little different from the ones I usually write. Today I’m showing you all how I made these floating shelves by myself under $50!

I have been wanting to put up these floating shelves on this blank wall in my room for MONTHS now, and THANKS TO QUARANTINE (and my procrastination on my summer class homework) I finally got around to doing it! Could you probably get the same shelves on Amazon for roughly the same amount of money without spending three straight days breathing in paint thinner fumes and probably decreasing your life span by about 6 months? Yes. But something something trust the process, amirite kids? and also something something stop donating to the Jeff Bezos trust fund something something ok i’ll stop now

For real though, I really enjoyed this whole process, and I LOVE how they turned out. They are such a nice starting point for the room makeover/declutter that I’m doing now, and now I finally have a place to store my mug collection! They match perfectly with the bookshelves in my room, and with some fairy lights on them? *chef’s kiss* PERFECTION.

I filmed the whole process, and here is the process, in all its glory. Enjoy!


VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION: do you also collect mugs? Leave a comment and let me know! For wanting to be a minimalist, I have way too many mugs, but it’s definitely not a problem . . . is it?

P. S. Are you subscribed to my YouTube channel yet?

    SO COOL 🤩 and also: mugs are some of the greatest things ever, I love them so much and when I have my own house, I will probably have 3 full cupboards of just mugs 😂
