DIY Colored Shelf Brackets

Do you remember the Global Eclectic Bedroom? Well, I promised I'd share how I customized the shelves in this space. Here's how I added a little splash of the client's favorite color, purple.

I gave simple IKEA brackets a quick coat paint in 3 shades of purple.  I think this really makes these shelves look a lot more pricey then they are.  I love giving inexpensive, easily sourced items a little custom look. Instantly you don't have the IKEA shelves that everyone else has, you've got super cute 3 toned purple shelves. So, much better, right?


  1. I love your blog! And I absolutely love this simple DIY. A must try for me in the future.

  2. great idea! where do you get your awesome spray paint?
