DIY Bookshelves...made with Books!
You gotta love Real Simple for all of their easy, breezy DIY projects and organization tips! All you need to complete this clever little project are some old books (pretty ones are a plus!), some hardware and a drill. I love the colorful books they used and all of the interesting "found" objects neatly displayed. In case anyone would like to take a stab at this project, I've included the instructions below. What do you think?!
DIY book shelves (literally) via realsimple.com
Find some cloth or leather-bound books with beautiful spines that will work well together as a grouping.
Buy two sets of brackets, using one set for below the books and a single bracket for above. Measure the thickness of each book and start drilling.
Slide each book between the top and bottom brackets before placing light-weight objects on it.
Voila! Enjoy your new "book" shelves!
