Shelves are a wonderful thing. When you need extra storage, their loving, open surfaces provide you that extra space you're looking for. When you need a place on a wall to display your favorite things? They embrace your constant rearranging of knick-knacks and art. And though stylish shelves can sometimes be a pretty penny, we've got a handful of sleek shelves you could make yourself this weekend for hardly any dough at all.

Pictured above: Simple materials, simple outline. Pretty simple instructions. Make this cool shelf with the help of Lauren Kelp.
