Herok’s Top Five DIY Book Shelf Ideas

Following the success of our article entitled ‘Herok’s Top 10 Creative Book shelf Designs’, we have selected our top five book shelf ideas that you could make yourself on a shoe string budget… Do it your shelf you might say!

We are always looking for inspiration for new children’s library furniture products, and today we thought we would share some more of our research into adult library furniture with you. Finding creative ways to display books can be just as alluring as any kind of art. These easy and clever book shelves look so cool and unusual but were also chosen as they can be made on a tiny budget, or by recycling things you may already own. Here is a collection of our top five favourites, displayed in reverse order.

You can also do a similar idea with just one ladder.
