Last week I made these honeycomb shelves for our living room.
We received positive feedback, and questions about how I made them so we decided to feature a DIY over at the one and only A Beatiful Mess for those who want to take a crack at building them, themselves.
For those of you who don't want to make the trek to the lumber yard, don't own a miter saw, or would just like to buy a kit, I am offering ready made Honeycomb kits for your convenience! Ill send you the pre cut, pre sanded, pre drilled planks, screws, brackets, and instructions. All you have to do is glue and screw the pieces togther. easy peazy.
Last year I made some honeycomb shelves out of reclaimed wood. That project was one of my favorites, and since we couldn't bring them with us to Phoenix, I decided to make some new ones. Since I don't have have a table saw, I decided to make the shelves out of fencing planks from Lowes. Not only do they come in uniform thickness and width, which is handy,They're cheap (the whole project cost less than 15 bucks) and they have cool natural texture and color. I wrote a tutorial last year for Design Sponge post. The only difference with these is that instead of pinning, I screwed the wood together with 1" drywall screws (pre drilling to prevent cracking).
To mount the shelves, I used old brackets I saved when I took down some ugly blinds.
Always save stuff like that, you never know when you'll need them!
After the glue was dry, I took a sander to the shelves to give it more character and texture.
This how they turned out!
