    An original bookcase can be a wonderful decoration of any interior. Not only will you impress your guests, but it will also let you save lots of space to store a number of small bits and pieces.

    If you are into DIY and you love books, you have come to the right place. Come take a look at what we have got for you!

    #1 Modular bookcases

    All you need in this case is a few single modules and office clips. Another bonus is that it is completely up to you what it finally will look like.

    #2 A ladder bookcase

    The final things looks spectacular. Personally, I would love to have it in my living room.

    #3 A ladder stand

    A foldable ladder also has got some bookcase potential. Unfold it in a desired spot, add wooden shelves and that's it!

    #4 An invisible bookshelf

    If you really want to impress your guests, that's the one you have been looking for. It's all about a few hinges that in the end are hidden behind the books.

    #5 Some colorful accents

    If you prefer some unusual solutions, you are going to like this one. Each bookshelf can be covered with some wrapping paper or wallpaper.

    All of a sudden your room will be so colorful.

    #6 A TV set with a bonus

    Obraz

    This original combination is the answer to the question whether watching TV really kills reading books. Resourceful and so practical!

    #7 An old drawer

    All you need to do is to cover the bottom of an old drawer and fix it to the wall. And an amazing bookcase is ready to store!

    #8 A pipe-shelf? Why not!

    Of course thanks to our plumbers there are so many possible combinations that this one here is just a tip of the iceberg.

    #9 A mobile bookcase

    Obraz

    Another design which in fact is really easy to make. As long as you have 2 wooden shelves, 4 wheels and 2 wire mesh baskets

    #10 Rope as an essential building material

    This is another proof that you don’t really need much to create something original and good-looking. In this case that means white wooden boards and a thick rope.

    #11 2 in 1: a table and a bookcase

    This is what I like the most. One object with two functions. What is more, to make it you only need to find an old wooden cable spool. A perfect match!

    #12 Wine crates

    Just like in the case of old drawers, you only have to decorate the bottom and fix it to the wall.

    #13 A file divider turned into a shelf
