DIY Donkey Kong Shelves
I am a big nerd, I am not afraid to admit it either. I love video games and comic books! So, when I decided to paint my office, I figured it would be the perfect time to update my Wall of Awesome. I had seen images of some really cool Donkey Kong Shelves, but could not find them anywhere online! ACK! So I went on a mission to make them myself, and you know what? They were really simple to make!
I just love how these DIY Donkey Kong Shelves turned out! They make a perfect addition to my nerdy office! Not only that, they complement my DIY Mario Shelves perfectly!
I used some floating shelves that I found online and created a stencil using PicMonkey. The shelves I found had a nice thick front and were actually pretty cheap! All 4 came in a set for just $25! I already had the paint, so my only out of pocket cost was the shelves!needed:
Red & White Paint
Stencil (You can grab it below!)
Craft knife or Silhouette Cutter
Stencil Spray (optional)
It took some trial and error to get the image to fit my shelves. I just adjusted the fit size in my printer options until I had a perfect size.
To see how I made these Shelves from start to finish, check out the video below! And don’t forget to check out some of my other favorite Nerdy Crafts, like my DIY Mario Lamp! Also, be sure to check out our Pinterest Account where I share TONS of different fun, easy, and Nerdy Crafts!

Love the shelves.
Oh, its really hard to choose just one character. I think my favorite video game character is Mario. Comic books… I’m really not sure. I like so many!
Cute shelves. They looked really easy to do. I had no idea you could make a stencil in PicMonkey.

Stacy, if you love Mario, stick around! I will be doing a Mario themed project soon!
This is so simple yet cute! Love your little Gizmo!
