Standing Shelf Plans

Free standing shelving units are very popular for both apartments and houses. They are versatile and can be used in virtually any room, from laundry to powder room, kitchen to basement.

These free standing shelves plans are economical and add a lot of decorating punch for your dollar. Choose stain or paint to blend with your room decor and add storage or display space in a small amount of space.




Some free standing shelf plans use plywood and are easy to build. Other plans use hardwood, for an elegant designer look and require some advanced woodworking skills. Choose a shelving unit that doubles as a room divider or a portable model that leans against a wall. A free standing shelf helps to organize clutter and display collectibles and keepsakes.
