Spool Bookcase

Create useful, simple and charming case for your favorite books!
Giving a second life is the best side of all DIY projects. By using our ingenuity and creativity, we make our surroundings more handy, practical and decorative.

It’s a wonderful feeling, when you know that you make the most of useful stuff you have. The next project I want to describe is really inexpensive, and you can easily make it yourself.

I’ve been a bookworm since I was a child. I love all of them, and I must admit, that books at my house occupy more place on shelves and in the wardrobe than all my family’s clothes ;) I found this interesting and easy project on awesome website - Pink Stitches. You can find many useful DIY ideas and detailed tutorials there. This one is absolutely perfect for me and for all book lovers.

If you’re still looking for bookshelf idea, check out Anthro Inspired Bookcase. It’s a really untypical project!
