semi floating shelves

I really like the look of these bookcases with shelves appear to float, or ledge shelving that's built into a nook. The chunky shelves feel nice and substantial, they look is sleek and modern with no excess bracketing or hardware. I'd like to build these into a few niches in my home.

But I have other projects on tap first! (And a huge backlog waiting in the wings too.) Today I have some time so I'm going to finish patching and sanding stairway walls and then pick out and test some paint colors. Still haven't decided how much I'm going to do on my own. Let's see how the painting goes!

These look great. I particulary love how the shelves in the first image are styled!

This is perfect! I am all about making the most of a space and would love to open a pocket for shelves in the bathroom.

Good luck with your painting and I can't wait to see how it all shakes out.

Love this idea! Have you seen Amber Interior's blog, lately?? She did something similar w/shelves and posted about it. I think her husband made the shelves?? It turned out great.

I love that first bookshelf! The floating shelves, the color, the arrangements, everything! Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves!

These would be a perfect solution for a little nook that you don't know what else to do with...and I'm with you, I have more projects "on deck" than I can count :(

That first image with the raw wood, turquoise, and composition pretty much takes my breath away.

Love open shelving...requires a little more organiztion, but worth it for the wonderful look!!

If you have a niche in your home those shelves would be a great way to optimize it.

Have a great weekend.
