If you're looking for something a little different in the world of decor, check out this simple DIY project that is a "swinging" good time. It "bridges" the gap between fun and functional and I bet you're "hanging" onto the edge of your seats to see how to make it right?

Over at Instructables, user fungus amungus has been busy deconstructing a traditional bookshelf and making a few modifications. A chop saw was used to cut the pieces into equal sizes and then each piece had two holes drilled through them. They were strung up with washers between the pieces to create visual gaps and mounted to the hardware.

It sounds simple and it really is — especially since the end result looks so sophisticated. Although you probably won't use this idea to hold your entire library, it might be fun for a shelf or two for a more whimsical display. Check out all the details over at Instructables!
