Today on Modern Builds I'm going to build out a men's clothing store, on the cheap, in a week! We used simple materials: OSB and Raw Steel to create repeatable designs that can be reorganized to update the store layout without adding additional pieces. I hope you enjoy the video, and if you are interested in doing something similar, feel free to send me a DM on instagram @modernbuilds.

I think it works with the aesthetic the store/clothing is going for. It's definitely a streetwear style which kind of plays with contemporary ideas of fashion - aka why a lot of streetwear can look tacky, but that's why it's considered fashionable - so the contrast of an inexpensive and bare material against designer streetwear clothing makes sense
@Christian Exactly what I was thinking. Industrial + minimal makes for an unfinished cheap mess. Lots of bigger name shops do this, and although it is way more expensive, its miles apart from what this ended up being.
I agree with this, creating a juxtapostion in the shop is a cool idea, many streetwear shops do this. But you dont use cheap osb that looks like a kid in 6th grade could have made. It just show's that the interior was quickly thrown together, and wasnt cared about. Which is exactly what happened
Shouldn't the slopping part of the counter be the other way around? so that it acts as a toekick space so people can stand close to the counter...like in a kitchen. Also, enclosing the steel tubes and then welding them? It doesn't give anywhere for the heat to go when you weld it to the other tubes.
Idk why everyone in the comments are hating. I think it looks sick! Both modern but industrial. Definitely makes the clothing stand out more and this video inspires me to go through with my dream of starting a small clothing shop on a budget.
@TJ MCHPIE Not really, to me it does look kinda cheap tbh. It all depends on how you market it and how your company stands. If it looks like a joke, the whole store will look cheap. If their company takes itself seriously and builds store equivalent advertisement outside or online, it will look way more legit.
Making pedestals OVER a shelving block (ie, the backside being open with a middle shelf in it) seems like a real missed opportunity. Gives you your pedestal design and usable storage for the displayed item.
I like the idea of it, but I agree with other people saying that the OSB wasn't the best idea and does look cheap. It's kind of a stark contrast when you see it and a 200 dollar hoodie next to each other lol
Great concept for a video but horriblely made. This only works for this branche of fashion. The osb displays look cheap and empty. Its also not really decorating the whole store for 2500 if you already had the lights and floor...
I get that you are trying to make it kind of rustic, but it is so unrefined and the design is inconsistent, so it ends up looking kinda cheap. Normally like what you do, but you didn't hit bullseye on this one
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
