DIY Bookshelf Chair

A little bit of patience and manual skills needed to sit and read with style
Our first impression, when we saw this awesome Bookshelf Chair, was WOW! We want it now! Mania would fill it with her yarns and tools such as crochet hooks and knitting needles, straight away. Even though it is quite an advanced project, perfect for a person who is highly skilled in woodwork, Darko K, who entered with this DIY for the first time on Instructables, managed to complete it with easy and extraordinary, final style!

We admire people who do not grumble when see beautiful objects being too expensive for them to buy. Instead, they take the matters into their hands and create. Such a wonderful work Darko! As he writes, he made it as a gift for his wife, and his mother in law helped him finish the cushions what made the chair even more unique.

The probable inspiration for this Bookshelf Chair was La Bibliochaise designed by nobody&co, which goes together with a footrest. Darko's chair is not far away from the original but has something that cannot be gained in the factory - the heart and a personal (little) imperfections which only real DIY's can have!

If you try to recreate his project, you'll be provided with full step by step instructions as well as detailed photos. Just click the link for DIY Bookshelf Chair and make your hands busy this summer.
