If you’re an avid reader who is looking for a creative way to display your respectable book collection, if you’re tired of ordinary bookshelves you can find in just about any home, and if you would like a unique display that tells a story of your personal style, than you’re going to love these DIY bookshelf designs.
This one-of-a-kind bookend display puts those old phones you have lying around to good use once again. You will need 2 old phones, 2 pieces of thin metal 1.5” wide cut into 7.5” long strips, 2 pieces of felt in any color you choose cut just a bit smaller than the metal strips, 2 flathead screws, 2 drill bits (one a bit larger than the other), 1 can of metal spray paint in whatever color you would like, a cordless drill, and a hot glue gun or whatever glue you have on hand.
Elsie and Emma from ABeautifulMess will surely give you better idea of how this should be done.
Old ladder bookshelf
That old ladder cluttering up the garage that may be too unsafe to climb on can easily be turned into a secure, creative way to display your prized book collection. Decide if you would like a 90 degree corner bookshelf or whether you would like to display it along a straight wall. Mount it to the wall using 4 ‘L’ brackets to support the weight. Now, let your new bookshelf speak for itself as it is sure to be a conversation starter.
Invisible bookshelf idea
Instead of your beautiful well-read leather bound or cloth books taking up extra room on the bookcase turn them into display shelves that can hold more books or other valuable items. Steven & Chris from CBC have the full tutorial for you. You can get it here.
