My boys are Lego obsessed. Of course in their eyes Legos are for building and then keeping your creation for years. This means that their room is overrun by Legos on every surface. I decided it was finally time to build them a proper display space for their collection. If your house is over-run by any type of collection these DIY floating Lego shelves are a simple and affordable way to display lots of things!
I started by cutting a cedar board down to the proper length and sanding it smooth.
**this post contains affiliate links** Then I stained it with Red Mahogany stain, mainly because it matches our trim color.
Next I installed these black shelf brackets that I picked up at our local hardware store (Menards) for about $3 each.
I attached them using one anchor per bracket as well as an additional screw.
Then I just laid my boards across the pegs. If you look closely they have little rubber bands on each bracket that sort of grip the bracket to hold each board in place.
I just love that these fit the rustic look of the rest of the room. I also love that the boys now have TONS of room for their creations.
Honestly, the minute I was done taking these pictures they added about a million more creations to the shelves.
I used the top shelf for a few cute items to add some charm to their room. They can’t reach that shelf anyways.
Now I just have to figure out how to keep Mason from playing with the legos on the shelves when he’s supposed to be sleeping at night!
So if you’ve got a collection that is taking over your house, try adding a bunch of these simple shelves! I did this entire project for under $50 and it made a huge impact!
