Bookshelves are not only decorative, they are often necessary. If you have loads of books or even if you have only a few and want to display them nicely, we have a great collection of 25 DIY bookshelves that you can build in very little time.
Some of these use recycled materials, which makes them cheap and that’s our favorite kind of DIY. Others are knock-offs, another DIY that we love. Some of them are so easy that you can build them from scratch. From pallets and ladders to ropes and wine crates, there is a bookshelf in here for everyone.
Whether you need bookshelves for the kids’ rooms, your cookbooks, or any other books or collectibles, you can create these gorgeous bookshelves in less than a day. Paint them, stain them, or just leave them all natural. They are easy to build, cheap, and a great way to add some functioning décor to your home.
1. Anthropologie Knock Off Bookcase
Imagine paying out over a thousand bucks for a bookcase! And, it doesn’t even hold that many books. In fairness, the price of this one in the catalog does include a vintage set of cookbooks but still. That’s just way too much for a small bookshelf, especially when you can DIY. You just need a few pieces of wood and a couple of hours to spare and you can create this stunning display case for those favorite books. If you have any vintage cookbooks, be sure to put them in there then it will be just like the one from Anthropologie.
