I totally love the idea of creating fun and funky shelving!  There are so many ideas that you can do, and over the course of this blog we’ll bring you heaps, but today I want to share with you a bookshelf that is becoming so fashionable! In fact I have a spare bit of wall and may just give this awesome little bookshelf a go.

The only problem is deciding which book I love least to sacrifice? Hmm.

Anyway while I decide, I’ll tell you briefly what you need to create it, and show you where you can watch it being made step by step before your eyes.  Then you can decide if this really is the most simple bookshelf ever?

You will need for this little project, an L bracket, a utility knife, a drill, a Philips head screwdriver, small and large wood screws (flathead), a tape measure, glue and of course, some books! 🙂 Especially that big book that looks good, but that you will NEVER want to read again. Remember you can get each of these things from the DIY Bargain Bin.

So with these things in hand, watch this entertaining light hearted instructional video on YouTube by VideoJug on how to do it at home.  Alternatively, if you prefer standard shelves, and are not quite ready to have all your friends ask you about your crazy new book shelf, remember that the DIY Bargain Bin has lots of different shelf options in the DIY Bargain Bin Cabinets / Cabinet Hardware and Shelf section.
