I really like the shelves. How big is the room and how long are the shelves? I just want to get an idea of a good length for shelves like those.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Custom reclaimed wood shelves with magenta tops span the room; they display Mexican pieces found on Olvera Street in downtown L.A. Shelves: Scott Coppersmith
Get crafty. Doing your own work not only will save you money, but it will push you to get more creative, too. Instead of buying something straight out of a catalog or off the showroom floor, you may find yourself coming up with your own DIY creation, learning new skills along the way. A space that you have worked on with your own two hands feels more like home, and you will certainly earn bragging rights among family and friends.
