Book Shelves for Book Worms...
I found these shelves in my stash and immediately hated them, but I tried them anyway.. Yuck!
I punched in "unusual bookcases" and it suggested unusual bookcase ideas. I found a LOT of amazing bookcase options.
I looked and looked... Then I went back to the top to look some more. The second photo on the page hit my eye. I changed it a bit and didn't use the round one at all.
I sketched a rough pattern and cut out the materials for two of the worm like ones.
I used a back board of bass wood. The dividers are sheets of veneer and the outer case? Plain old black, pattern embossed cardstock from a pad of scrapbook paper. In person, it looks like wrought iron.
The Terrible Two grabbed it, even before the glue was dry or the front edges of the dividers were sanded.
They hung it on the wall with masking tape to see if it worked.
It worked. Now I can make the other one. I will probably hang them staggered or with one upside down. We shall see.
As I do the second one, I will draw up a useable pattern and instructions. Who knows? Maybe somebody else would like a book worm bookcase? Now I have to come up with some kind of desk and chair to go with it. Back to MSN and "unusual desks".
See you tomorrow.
