DIY Bookshelves

DIY Home May 14, 2012

Recently I had the misfortune of stepping on the screen of my kindle. Before you try it for yourself let me say they don’t withstand that sort of calousness, and so I had to put my kindle to rest. Sad moment for all. In a moment of hating technology, I’ve decided it’s time to get back into reading actual books, which I can stand on all I like. Time to start collecting again!  But where oh where to store them? My mind has naturally turned to book shelves, one of those infinitely DIYable pieces of furniture.
Here are some thoughts on how to DIY your own:
  • The crate bookshelf – Stack crates on top of each other and wire together. You can also use boxes or even recycled drawers from a wardrobe. My brother once made one of these out of mild crates across the whole of one wall of his bedroom – was super cool!
  • The metal pipe bookshelf – Screw angled metal piping to the walls and balance books on the angles. 
  • The ladder bookshelf – Put some wooden planks on a ladder to create a makeshift bookshelf.
  • The brick and plank bookshelf – An oldie but a goodie, and popular with uni students everywhere, stack some bricks and planks of wood to create a simple book case.

Here’s a few ideas about how they could be put together. Do you have any other DIY bookshelf ideas?
