Rockin’ Golden Chain Shelving Units

Rockin’ Golden Chain Shelving Units

Hello! Happy Wednesday!  Today I am revealing another portion of the living/dining room design we just completed for a rockstar couple, Jonny and Angelene!  They are wonderful people and have a great story as well! Of course we wanted to create a space that fit this couple’s personality and I feel like we hit the nail on the head with this next idea!

Last week I showed you these two photos. . .

Well, those chains (which Tim welded to stand up straight) became parts of 2 shelving units used to display family treasures and to store CD’s!


I’m not sure why I associate chains with rock and roll, but it really does feel fitting to me.  I also love the contrast of the colors between the black, white, and gold!


Speaking of the gold, I ran to Spectrum Paint to pick up my favorite paint ever (Benjamin Moore’s Molten Metallic- Gold) to use on this project.  It’s seriously becoming an obsession.

The paint bonds to metal and creates an extremely hard finish.  Here’s a side by side comparison of the chain before and after the paint.

In an effort to keep the rest of the room a surprise until tomorrow, I don’t have a wide view of the shelving units, but here is cropped photo for you to get a little better look. . .


Do you like them?!  I hope so!  🙂  But what really matters is that Jonny and Angelene liked them! Yay! 🙂

    You guys are SO inspiring!!! How did you attach them to the shelves, glue or did you drill into the board? I see that piece of hardware, but I’m not sure exactly what it is. Thanks so much, your idea is awesome!
