A creative mum has made a modern set of industrial-style shelves for her home using unlikely buys from Kmart and Bunnings Warehouse.
Anthadene, from Perth, Western Australia, made the shelving for less than $150 and shared the end result to the Kmart Hacks & Décor Facebook group.
‘Industrial shelf using the acacia serving boards,’ she captioned the social media post.

The clever mum used three $17 serving boards from Kmart (pictured) and plumbing-style fitting from Bunnings Warehouse
Surprisingly the wooden serving boards worked exceptionally well as shelves and looked fantastic.
Others were keen to know how she completed the DIY project, and in the comments a fellow DIY enthusiast said the pipes holding the shelves in place are ‘plumbing-type fittings’ painted black.
Anthadene later confirmed that’s precisely what she did.
‘The serving boards are from Kmart and all the metal framework pieces and black paint is from Bunnings,’ she told Yahoo Lifestyle.
To complete the industrial theme, adorable glass beakers were used as succulent pots, which can be purchased from eBay.
The DIY project was praised by more than 700 people online, and some dubbed the design as ‘beautiful’.
‘OMG that’s absolutely amazing!’ one person commented, another added: ‘Love it!’
‘Would love to do this in my science classroom!’ a third said.
Last month DIY pro Samantha Milne, from Tasmania, initially wanted the Globe West round mason coffee table (pictured) but wasn’t willing to pay $1490 – so she created one herself in just 10 minutes for less than $100
The end product looked exactly like the Globe West design without the expensive pricetag
Last month an interior designer with a passion for DIY projects has made herself a modern coffee table using two products from Kmart and Bunnings Warehouse.
DIY pro Samantha Milne, from Tasmania, initially wanted the Globe West round mason coffee table but wasn’t willing to pay $1490 – so she created one herself in just 10 minutes for less than $100.
In a video shared on Instagram, Samantha revealed she used the wooden legs from the $29 Kmart finn coffee table and stone-like top from the $60 Bunnings Warehouse table.
The end product looked exactly like the Globe West design without the expensive pricetag.
In the comments Samantha described the home project as ‘super easy’ and anyone can do it.
