The description of Creative Bookshelves DIY

Keeping your house clean and well-sorted is probably one of the trickiest tasks, especially if you are one of those people who have more books than clothes and shoes combined. Each of your books is priceless and you want to preserve them in the best condition possible. But it is not always so easy, especially if you do not have a proper bookshelf. Now bookshelves do not come cheap, be it a simple plywood one or an ornate wooden case. So, here are forty simple yet trendy bookshelves DIY for you and your books.

Have an old wooden ladder in that shed that's no longer being put to use? You could have yourself a free creative bookshelves with just a few nails and hammer. Flipping the ladder on it's side, it acts as a horizontal shelf, whereby the two side poles support the books, and the rungs act as built in book ends. The older the wood, the better. This will surely transform any room into a vintage-classic space.
A variety of shelves can be made by using old books. The first is a concealed shelf whereby the book itself acts as the support. Using just a wall bracket and some screws, a hardcover can cover the bottom bracket, and more books can be placed on top. Another option is gather about a dozen of your old and unused books. Using a piece of wood and two wall brackets (similar to that of the first shelf) along with elastic webbing a shelf can be made. Simply staple a piece of the elastic on the wood using a staple gun, and slip the book into the elastic. Repeat this for the other dozen or so books, lining them up next to each other. This will create an inverted book case, with the wood acting as a shelf and the books seemingly floating underneath.

Project cost is based on the assumption you already have a screwdriver and small paint brush.
#1 Apply stain to the board and allow to dry (see instructions on can of stain)
#2 Install the brackets onto the board using 4 screws and screwdriver
#3 Find a stud in your wall (use a stud finder if possible) or use molly screws
#4 Install shelf with brackets onto wall using remaining 4 screws
#5 Place 8 to 10 paperback books on shelf and admire your handiwork

The great thing about creating shelving is you don’t have to spend a lot of money. In fact, you may not have to spend any money at all. These floating shelves are made with reclaimed wood so there’s no cost at all involved in making them if you have the right supplies on hand. The best thing about these? They have drawers! You can store so many office supplies and other items in the drawers that are completely hidden from view. Imagine the storage that three or four of these would give you. They’re really easy to build, too. You can create several in just one day.
