A couple of months ago I forced my flat mates to colour code our DVD shelves. It took a lot of persuasion, I can almost hear you shouting “but, how will I ever find mean girls?!” too!
Yes it makes finding a DVD 5 times harder but it’s 200% worth it.
We went from having a dull shelving unit jam packed with DVDs to a statement area of our lounge that everyone comments on!
To get this look yourself, here’s a few tips.
*If you house share be prepared to mix up your collections; being annoyingly organised I already initial my DVD’s; but if you are not ready to go down the permanent marker route, then cute little stickers will work nicely.
* Clear your shelves. It makes it a lot easier to get everything off and sort into colour piles.
* Decide how you want the colours to run on your shelves. We decided to start at white and run left to right through to black.
* Refine colour co-ordination once everything is on the shelf.
* Pick out matching or contrasting pieces to decorate the shelves.
Then stand back and enjoy the compliments!, an easy and free way to make a statement and get fabulous looking shelves.
