easy IKEA hack | cane shelves

ikea hack cane bookshelves for nursery

i've been making some little changes around the house whilst we're on lockdown, there are so many things i want to do but having an energetic toddler means time for home improvements is v. limited! however there is one update that i wanted to share on here, a cute modification to the shelves in gabe's room.

i love the IKEA flisat shelves, they're great bookshelves for children's rooms or nurseries. i wanted to give ours a makeover that was more in keeping with the natural/boho decor that we love in his room. 

this is such a quick project i managed to make ours in the garden whilst gabe took his afternoon nap a few weeks back. i love how they turned out and it was a great way to use up some of the leftover cane that i had from other furniture projects.

i'm so happy with how they've turned out, i think these shelves would look just as stylish on the wall in a living room with a few magazines (they're not just for nurseries in my opinion!)

if you want to try making them pop over and read the full the tutorial over at hunker where i've shared how to modify them before adding the cane detailing.

back soon
