You could mount this classic shelf on the wall of your pantry, rest it atop your desk, or plant it beside the window to act as the perfect storage solution/funky display case.
I’d love to hang this right next to my front door — maybe attach some hooks to the bottom of it — and make this my entryway catch-all. Keys, to-do lists, leashes, dog bags, loose change, etc., could ALL be contained within this baby. Ooh, that guy I married and I could even use that mini chalk board to write little notes for each other!

This vintage-inspired shelf is perfect for your tiny, rustic kitchen.
For the artists in the house, the “Shelf Expression” unit is the jam! As the description says, “Whether this pretty piece of decor holds your paints, brushes, or sculpting tools, it’s sure to keep your creativity flowing in delightful, homespun style!” And it’s only $29.
Getting into pricier-but-quirkier rustic shelving territory is this Make Your Case shelf is $99. But it’s so awesome! It’s a well-weathered metal case with a functioning open-and-close feature that lets you store shit inside and on top! AND it looks like a freaking vintage suitcase!
The IMAX Harmon Wall Shelf was inspired by the schoolhouses of yore. And it’d look awesome in your rustic-chic house of today!
Okay, so it’s basically a wooden block with turquoise edges and a bungee cord. Which is kind of genius, since you can dangle sunglasses, magazines, or earrings, or… what else? Get all those objects up and off the counter! But, is it worth $50? I say, make it yourself!
