There is something wonderful about the look of a nicely bound book, and on a nicely designed bookcase, your books can become a part of your decor as well as literature. Here we have a small twist on the book shelf idea: the book IS the shelf. In this video, Home Depot Forum associate Aboveaveragejoe takes you through this cool DIY project to re-purpose and old book as a cool floating display shelf.
In less than four minutes you’ll know all about what type of book to choose for the project, how to glue the pages together, how to attach the hidden bracket and how to properly drill the bracket (and book) into the wall.
When you’re done with the book shelf project, you’ll have a truly unique floating shelf that would look great in an office or library. Use children’s books for a fun, cute look in a nursery as well.
