Are you a reader that has run out of room for your every growing book collection? When I moved recently, we left our fabulous built-in bookshelves behind and ended up with 10 or so boxes of books in the garage for months. My boyfriend actually threatened to throw them out, since I was no longer actively reading any of them! Can you imagine? As a lifelong reader, I could not bear the thought of getting rid of some of my most prized possessions just because we did not have adequate storage in our new home. I quickly went looking to find a new home for my favorite books, but wanted something stylish for the new house. After perusing most every DIY bookshelf idea on Pinterest, I came up with this list of 34 awesome DIY shelving ideas and thought I would share it with you. From the quick, cheap and easy crate shelf you can make with boxes available at your local craft store to cute ideas for the kids’ rooms to dreamy, vintage-inspired shelves that already look like heirlooms, you are sure to find the perfect DIY bookshelf here. There are also several creatively cool ideas for bookshelf makeovers. I ended up trying the IKEA Billy bookshelf hack and ended up with two of those in the living room, they are perfect. What will you choose?
