Like most of my creations, this was a bit of an experiment. I used Pine lengths for the struts up the side and painted them white with a simple undercoat. I then sanded that back to make it look slightly older and distressed.
The shelves themselves are treated Pine that I painted different colours using sample pots from Bunnings. I sanded these back after painting too.
Putting the shelves on caster wheels and using scaffolding joints near the bottom gives it an industrial look. On the bigger shelves I attached a metal grid at the back and threaded fairy lights through it.
Altogether, the look is punky, industrial, vintage and playful.
