Skateboards



Skater boys (and girls) will love this shelving unit that puts the spotlight on their boards. Just put up a few brackets and place your boards on top. No need to nail them in! The best part is you’ll be able to swap out what’s on display anytime you like.

Raw wood



Bring nature into your home by putting up small raw wood shelves or small tree stumps that can hold special items. The shelf’s size will emphasize the item on it, and the texture will add some warmth and life to the room.
