Industrial Shelves

Make these shelves for your office!
A few months ago we changed the localization of our office. The previous workroom was insufficient for our needs. We were packed in one small space, I could say, without possibility of breathing. We had to find a bigger area for our projects. The current office is situated on the first floor of an old townhouse close to the Old Town. We are surrounded by ambience of small cafes where we can have a quick snack or lunch.

However, new office meant also redecorating works. Some pieces of furniture such as PVC Pipes Tables which served as our desks were easily transported but some other had to be newly constructed. On Beneath My Heart we found very good Industrial Shelves which were suitable to cover the whole wall and large enough to accommodate boxes with craft materials and documents.

Now we’re very glad to find our own private piece of working place. Tell us what your opinion on this industrial style furniture is. Leave a comment below.

    I am building this shelf in a rented apartment. any solutions on how to adapt the bottom since i can’t drill the hardwood floors? i thought about instead of drilling it onto the floor, drilling it on the wall. any suggestions? thank you!!

    just drill everything into a big piece of plywood, but you will need back support as well. If you do it this way you’ll have to set columns both at the front and the back of the shelves, and you can always varnish your bottom wood just like the floors.

    pardon us for such a late reply :( you can buy threaded pipes or order pipes that will be cut and threaded to the length you need. greets
