Check out these bookshelf ideas for your home and wave goodbye to the mundane. Bookshelves come in all shapes and sizes, some are tall some are small.

DIY Bookshelf Design

Today will be a DIY kind of day! We are all born with the skill of imagination, but how many of us use it? Imagination should be a spark for one’s creation. Saying this it’s time for us from DC to help you create your pallet bookshelf. Do you like wood? Do you have spare parts of timber lying in and around your home, well then it’s time to gather those pieces and stack them together. Use a measuring tape to determine the amount of space you have to create this type of bookshelf. Gather wood, use nails and glue to put it together in the shape and size you prefer. A quick tip: you might want to use gloves while making your piece of art to avoid any wood splinters. Once your pallet bookshelf is ready it’s time to decorate, you can paint it with the colour of your choice, or use 3D stickers for a cool, quirky look.

Abandon Me Not!

A long, long time ago there was a bookshelf, stacked with lots of books, but not anymore sadly the book worm disappeared, and abandoned was the bookshelf. Does this story sound familiar? If you have abandoned your bookshelf and have no idea what to do with it, well here is an idea. No one made a rule that bookshelves must be used only to stack books. Glass or ceramic vases give an elite look to your home which can be placed on a bookshelf along with indoor plants, souvenirs and family photos. If you are the kind that collects antiques, then what’s better than a bookshelf to display them on.
