I had this weird useless space in my kitchen area that wasn’t used for anything – simply waste of space! I always wanted a huge bookshelf and I love the mix of styles, so I thought that this could be a great place to make an industrial bookshelf – it would fit perfectly to my 12 arms chandelier! I found some old scaffold decks in a recycle construction warehouse. They cost about DKK 125 for one and additional costs if you need them to cut it into a certain size. Scaffold decks are really heavy and you’ll need long screws to make the shelf last BUT they are so cool, really industrial and you´ll the most spacious bookshelf ever! All you need is a long piece of wood cut into laths, long screws and plugs and maybe a bit of paint. I chose to paint the laths black so they won’t be too vicious, I liked them to blend into the industrial look. You can built lots of great furnitures with scaffold decks – I think it could be real awesome as a desk not to mention a bench or a dining table!
There are so many possibilities but my next scaffold deck-project will probably be a desk, like the one below, but I´d like to add a plate of copper on top because of the grooves and get either black metallic or shiny colored metal legs – depends on where I decide to put it, hmm need a new home to decorate 😉
What do you think? Any ideas or experiences? 🙂
Things aren’t exactly going my way at the moment! After 34 years I have finally found my way to cope with hard and challenging times – Ill need to do something creative, to change the look of my surroundings! This weekend I just couldn’t stand the brown look of my drawer, it was simply to depressing for me, simply too BROWN! The brown color doesn’t exactly remind of spring and happiness, so I decided very spontaneously to paint it! Here is the evidence of my weekends best mindfulness-activity 😉
I have picked the drawer up from a container, so the costs of this little DIY project was very little! If you, like me, often change colors and stuff I´d recommend you to be the small paint-samples instead of buying a whole bucket. The only thing about samples is the quality, but if you only need it for drawers its perfect!
