A DIY Book Shelf

A DIY Book Shelf

The difference between a bookshelf and a book shelf is not simply an extra tap on the space bar. The former is exactly what you think it is, a shelving system for books. The latter, however, is a shelf made from a book, which looks amazing, especially when used to hold other books.

We love this easy but oh-so-pleasing shelf from Instructables. Using an old book, an L-bracket and a couple of screws, this eye-catching shelf can be made in no time at all. The intriguing thing about this project is the lack of visible supports. The final effect is a mind-bending visual that will definitely make people stop and scratch their heads. Be sure to scroll through the comments section beneath the tutorial--the user-submitted photos really give you a sense of this project's potential.
