Dynamic Storage: DIY Box Shelves 

Every home needs some type of shelving. We all need to make use of the vertical space given us and we’re trying our best to find a balance between functional and stylish.

Box shelves create a chic and dynamic look while also giving you plenty of space! Here are some ideas, if you want to make them yourself!
