96. Invisible DIY Bookshelf
This bookshelf is absolutely amazing. It literally looks like the books are hanging all by themselves. But when you read on you see the trick.
So the bottom book is actually the shelf itself. It is just held in place with brackets. Then you stack other books on top of it. Again, it would be a neat conversation piece but not very good for a large number of books.
97. Mounted Shelving Unit
I must say that I really like this shelving option. It would work for lots of different things, but books would certainly be one of them.
But I must say that my favorite thing about this shelving unit is the industrial look. It would work well in both modern décor and a more rustic décor as well. Again, the design of these shelves doesn’t appear to be very complicated.
98. Knock Down Shelves
If you are someone that needs to be able to move your books when necessary, then this might be a shelving option for you. The person that built this bookshelf needed a way to organize their books but it also to be easy enough to unassembled if/when they had to move.
So they came up with these sturdier knock down shelves that are sturdy enough to hold books when they need them to, but also easy enough to take down when it’s time to pack up for a move. This might be a good option for a dorm room or something along those lines.
99. DIY Bookcase
I love the look of this home library. It appears super simple to build. Basically, she used wood supports for the shelves and then placed the shelving. It gives it a neat modern look while not being too complicated to put together.
So if you are in the market for a DIY idea that is simple and shouldn’t cost much, then you’ll want to check out this tutorial. She includes lots of pictures and detailed instructions to help you along with the process.
100. Life with Fingerprints Bookshelf
If you have children, then you are probably going to love this bookshelf. The reason is that it can hang on a wall so it won’t take up much needed space.
But I also love the fact that it has the railing in the front so the books won’t fall everywhere. This is great for smaller kids or kids that are in a hurry because then the books still end up where they should go instead of on the floor next to the bookshelf.
