Last week I went to the Bijou Market with some friends. I saw lots of cute stuff, some I thought I could reproduce and much I knew I never would. One item that really caught my eye was this little bookshelf some clever person had come up with. When I say bookshelf...I mean book-shelf. The shelf was a book. See? Clever.

I thought "Hey, I can do that!" and home I marched with ideas a-burstin. Two days, later, after a trip to D.I and a little jaunt to Lowes I had all I needed to make my own shelves. Here are some pics of how they turned out:

I really like how they look. All you need are some old, cool looking books, a little clear-drying glue, and some L-mounts. I used pages from an old children's book to cover the bottom of the mounts (using the glue).

The whole process took me about an hour. I didn't fix the books on the mounts yes, they are just balancing there precariously, but I just couldn't bare to put glue or nails on such gorgeous books.

Fun fun fun!
