Customized shelving

Smart shelving

This summer I made a new shelving beside and behind our sofa, as we were in lack of place to have books and decoration. I would of course loved to have Montana or String shelves but I had to find a cheaper solution.  Since I wanted it customized for our living room, I ended up with some shelves I bought at Ikea that I cut in the size I needed. The shelf at the top is made of three shelves that I put together, so we got a shelf behind the sofa as well.

Now we have lots of space for books etc. and I´m very happy with the result. I love when I can do big changes like this on a low budget!

    Wow, så lekkert! Så smart med hylle bak sofaen, det har jeg tenkt på jeg også. Da vi har enormt liten plass til slikt i kjellerstuen vår… Elsker alt det grønne også, er nok noe vi kommer til å se myye av i høst. Go green!

    Ha en fin dag fine, storklem!

    (elsker det nye designet på bloggen din!)

      Tusen takk, Jorid! Jeg er kjempefornøyd med løsningen, nå kan jeg sette pynt , legge blader ha lampe etc. bak sofaen også. Helt perfekt for oss son liker å bytte på litt :) Ellers skaper hyllene en helt annen romfølelse i stuen.

      Tipper det blir mye grønne planter fremmover ja – det er jo så lekkert!

      Så hyggelig at du liker det nye designet. Det var jammen på tide å få byttet over til WordPress. Har litt som gjenstår, men det kommer etterhvert…

      Ha en fin dag!
      Stor klem fra meg <3

      Thank you! The carpet is from Ikea also – bought it last year, but I think they still have it. :)

      Tusen takk, Cecilia! :)
      Sofaen er Karlstad i fra Ikea, og bordet er en utgått modell i fra Ikea. Jeg kjøpte det brukt.
      Takk for at du tok turen innom!

      Takk! Jeg elsker mixen av dyrt og billig, og gjerne second-hand. Det skaper en god balanse.
      Muuto kurven er veldig fin ja – super til alle bladene mine :)
      Et tips er å registrere shop´en din på Stylizimo.com. Logg deg på som medlem først, deretter veld “Add Shop under SHOPS”. Butikken vil da få ennå bedre synbarhet, når den ligger i vår shop-oversikt hvor det titter tusenvis av mennesker innom hver dag.

    Så fint NIna, og ikke minst praktisk. Liker spesielt godt at hylla fortsetter bak sofaen. Har lagt merke til det på bildene før:-) Ønsker deg en super uke!

      Du har lagt merke til det før ja :) Jeg har vært litt treg med å vise oversiktsbilder, for jeg har jo hatt det en stund :)
      Hyggelig å høre at du liker løsningen.

      God uke til deg!

    Så himla fint! Gillar att du har satt hyllan bakom soffan också.
    Var har du köpt de gråa boxarna och den fina kudden i soffan?

      Tusen takk, Sofia! Det er hyggelig å høre.
      Den sorte boksen er en skoeske, og den grå er i fra HAY. Puten (kudden) har jeg sydd selv.

    Det är så snyggt att jag kissar på mig!! Jag älskar allt från golv till tak liksom.
    Å det är ju så snyggt med just en sådan hyll-lösning eftersom man får den där snygga luften ner mot golvet.
    Tyvärr har jag en man som bara inte kan fatta poängen med att skruva upp hyllor i väggarna, när man kan köpa en hylla stående på golvet…. say no more… han är norrman ;) *tihi*

      Hehe, så søt du er, Sessan! :)
      Heldigvis er jeg sammen med en nordmann som ikke bryr seg så mye når det kommer til interiør. Han stoler på meg :)
      Men nå har vi et gammelt rekkhus som det ikke er “nye” slette vegger, så da stiller det seg kanskje litt anderledes :)

      Du får “jobbe” med saken – får får du nok viljen din til slutt! hehe

      Stor klem til deg!

      I have made the cushion myself out of a fabric I found at Stoff & Stil ( A textile shop we have here in Norway)
      Maybe you can knit one? It´s made of wool :)

    Hei flotte deg<3

    For en fantastisk flott hjemmeside, blogg og instagram-profil! Og så fantastiske konkurranser(venter i spenning og krysser fingre for Eames)-all ære til deg! Har lett en stund etter teppe til stuen, vanskelig å finne noe som passer til ren minimalistisk skandinavisk stil med gammel flotte tregulv, men ditt teppe ser sannelig ut som gull:) Er det Basnås fra ikea? Takk for svar. Ha en fantastisk kveld!

    This is no limit, and there is a lot of damage. And since
    the rest of the three available modes brings its own twist to things, with the state license,
    too. And we want to talk about it and made a small area

    What great looking shelves. I also love the color scheme you’ve got going. The mostly greys and whites with a bit of vibrant green here and there. Its so hard to find types of storage that I like, I might take a leaf out of your book and cut some to fit my stlye.
