Do you or someone you love suffer from “flat surface syndrome”? This condition, ranging from mild to chronic, causes the sufferer to fill up all the flat surfaces in their home with stuff. While cleaning and organising can help, there really is only one sure-fire way to treat this syndrome. Create more flat surfaces with these DIY shelves!

This collection of DIY shelves offer you some wonderful ideas for creating more “flat surfaces” in your home on which to put your stuff. Some of these ideas are so creative, you’ll be tempted to make them even if you don’t need any shelves. After all, you’ll find a use for those shelves. You know you will.

I included a range of designs to fit nearly any decor, and each of these would be a fun DIY project to work on with someone else. That way, you can create more flat surfaces in your home and have a great story to go along with it!
