You guys, our mid-century modern floating shelves are absolutely insane. They totally made the living room space when we remodeled it as part of the Fall 2019 One Room Challenge, and now they are looking for a new home in our home because…we took that wall out! That’s right, these shelves are just sitting and waiting to be installed elsewhere. But we’ve received so many questions about them that we thought why not share with you all how to make them for your home. This is our tutorial on how to build mid-century modern floating shelves.
The shelf design we chose was inspired by a fellow husband and wife team – Weekley Design & Build. They are an incredibly talented duo who does the most insane custom builds, so check them out. And while their shelf design was slightly different than ours from a build and install perspective, this tutorial holds true on how to do it for yourself. We will cover a 5 shelf, two tier unit in this tutorial.
And there you have it. As always, please let us know if you have any questions in the comments section below. And if you decide to build a set of mid-century modern floating shelves in your home, send us pictures and tag us! We want to see how you did it in your space.
