ikea ekby bjarnum bracket...

First, thank you all SO much for your kind comments on my bamboo dresser makeover!
  I truly appreciate you taking the time to stop and be so thoughtful!

I'm way overdue for one of my Ikea favorite posts, this one could be a quick and
 inexpensive weekend diy. I love the Ekby Bjarnum shelf bracket for the clean, stylish detail
 it adds to a plain shelf, and the price, of course!

2 for $10
At 11" deep it can fit into the tightest of places, making it super functional.
It can take on an industrial look when left as is in the nickel finish,
or my favorite, give it a spray of gold paint to dress it up.

The bracket covers the edge of the shelf so you can cut the shelf without the
cut edge showing.

Check out the creative ways it's been used...

I've never noticed those at Ikea. What a great way to make a simple DIY shelf that looks like a million bucks!

Love your blog and your style! The bottom pic is from my other idol, Sarah Richardson. It's the teen bedroom in the back split remodel she did several years ago.

These are some of my favorite shelves, so versatile! Thanks for the feature :)

Love the gold!! But we're building a rustic-meets-loft "barn house" and most of the other elements are a darker metal. We're installing white Ikea cabinets and zinc countertops. Have you seen anyone paint them an oil rubbed bronze or aged steel finish?
