Built-In DIY Firewood Storage Shelves

This gorgeous fireplace wall by @acarriedaffairdesigns integrates the firewood with the design as a decorative feature. She combined IKEA bookshelves and raw materials to create an entire wall of built-in storage.

Narrow open shelves flank the fireplace, keeping the firewood accessible. The cut wood contrasts nicely with the dark green paint (Backwoods by Benjamin Moore.)

These modern wood racks from @michaelrobertconstruction were customized by a metal fabricator. But you could DIY a similar look with black steel pipe and elbow fittings.

The metal bars keep the wood neatly stacked and create visual interest in this beautiful outdoor space. Be sure to install this kind of rack in a protected setting like a covered porch to keep the wood dry.

One-Day DIY Firewood Storage Rack

@woodyworking visualized and created this firewood box in one day. “It was a fun change of pace to build with no real plans other than an idea in my head,” he writes. “And as long as it keeps the firewood dry, it’s a win!”

The cinder blocks support the weight of the wood and elevate it off the ground, keeping it dry. And the top offers extra seating in a pinch.

A-Frame DIY Firewood Storage Shed

When @tinalemac couldn’t find the perfect size A-frame firewood shed, she decided to make her own with wood and a miter saw. The base is made of 2x4s. For the roof, she used four-foot flat-top fence lumber, overlapping the planks to prevent leaks. The end result is a cute little shed, simple and modern — a beautiful feature for any backyard or porch.
