Oh Hey, Honeycomb Shelves

Honeycomb ShelvesHoneycomb ShelvesWe recently hung our honeycomb shelves. My dad and grandpa hung them. These shelves were a DIY project last year here on the blog (see the original post here!), and I purchased a kit from Josh (he still sells individual shelves).

I love the unique shape and texture they add to our space. They make me smile literally every time I walk up the stairs. I also love that they create a display that will be easy to change up from season to season!Honeycomb Shelves-detailHoneycomb Shelves-detailHoneycomb Shelves-detailI still have many more empty walls to fill, but this is a little peek at our progress. Next up, a gallery wall!

  • What a gorgeous feature! This is such a good storage idea as well. I struggled with finding storage in my small apartment so I appreciate an article like this. I used Furnishr.com to help me solve my dilemma. They were so helpful in working with the dimensions of my space to come up with a functional interior look. I truly recommend their service.

  • I love these honeycomb shelves! I simply cannot wait for your full house tour when you’re ready to share it 🙂


  • Gorgeous idea! I am so into honeycomb shapes right now and would love to spend a day crafting this for my apartment. I even included it in a new article on my site, “11 Creative Projects to Make Your House a Home.”

    Thank you for the inspiration!!



  • Gorgeous! I love this shelf, and I so need to find a way to include something similar in my new house! I love how you’ve styed it, as well… The photos taped to the walls and plants make me smile!

  • The shelves are fabulous, and so is that little nook by the window! So cute!

  • These do look really pretty! 🙂

  • Love it !!

    Check out my new outfit post :

  • They are so lovely!! I love the styling with all of the green especially.


  • Why do you need your father and grandfather to hang your shelves for you? Women can be carpenters, too, you know. And shelf hanging is pretty darn simple.

  • I just love the honeycomb shelf look!! It’s so beautiful and I love how you ladies added the flowers!! =)


  • i love this! you girls always have the best ideas! this is so cute!

  • They look really fantastic! Might have to convince my husband to make some for us.

  • Very rustical but still unique!
    And I think,as well as you said,it`s a very versatile shelf,which by the way,I would love to see,how it changes through the year!


  • That really looks good; it’s so homely and unique, exactly what a house should be! I’m currently renting, but I love saving these photos for inspiration for when I finally do have my own house. Lucky you!!


  • I heart shelves!! These are the most original that I’ve seen in a while. I love your choices of greenery as well! This area looks so alive especially right next to that wonderful little window that lets off so much light! Keep the ideas comin!

  • i still love these shelves so much! and intend to make some for myself once i get the chance:-) x

  • These are awesome!! My husband is a carpenter and I just texted him a picture of these! This needs to happen in our house.

  • Beautiful Elsie! You are such an inspiration! You have the best taste in design and style.

  • Love these shelves!

  • I love these shelves. I actually tried to built them on my own when scott was at work and i cracked two of them, ha!! a little wood filler will fix them but just a reminder i’m not as handy as you and josh!

  • That’s really cute. That would work well in a small space, like my apartment.


  • My oh my! This is so amazing! Usually, I’m all for classic and traditional… but this is pretty cool!

    If you have the time, I’d really appreciate it if you could pop by my blog where I’m hosting a $50 gift card giveaway for my little vintage etsy store:

  • Soooo unique! And I love how you mentioned you can change it up with every season. You’re totally right!!

  • This is so wicked, I absolutely love it! It looks so great with all the natural light, too. Definitely going to look into this.
