Desk shelving - I see several questions have been asked about the desk/shelving but have gone unanswered. I too am interested and would like some information. Where were these purchased? How much did the cost? Are the lengths customizable?

We did something similar! I would have loved to do the wood paneling on the wall but we already had dark wood floors so i painted geometric designs and found shelving at IKEA for the desk and shelves. Loved this inspiration!

Clever! I can almost see it .... How did we survive before Ikea?

you will need to open up the drywall and install serious brackets to support it if you want it to float like that.

I was looking at these ones.

And did you install a plywood bedding to rest the quartz on top?

Thank you

How long is the desk? How much weight can it bear? How is it secured? - I love this long expanse of desk surface and the floating effect. Just want to know how it's attached to the wall and whether it can bear much weight.

LED lighting under shelves. LED tape lights highlight the reclaimed Douglas fir accent wall in this space. The automotive paint finish on the shelves and desktop makes for an interesting contrast to the well-worn wood planks.Intact LED tape lights: WAC Lighting; decorative accessories and Nuevoliving half chrome pendant lights: Vanillawood
