Though eBooks and audiobooks have grown in popularity over the last few years, there’s nothing I love more than a good ol’ paper book.
In fact, I’m quite the collector. A bookshelf is a necessity for someone like me, and for a ton of other people too. For a lot of people, a bookshelf ends up being the main decor piece in a room.
Take Jess and Sinclair Breen from Australia, the couple who made an insanely impressive DIY custom bookcase for their children.
As the owners of a home renovation company, making this book case was a relatively easy feat for them, but the stunning bookcase made it to the internet.
Needless to say, it went viral and the internet went crazy.
A ton of carefully cut out boards, predrilled by a cabinet maker, were lined up and screwed together to make each box that formed the final design. In case you were wondering, the couple used enough boards to make a total of 36 boxes. Talk about a ton of book space!
Arranging the boxes on a large piece of medium density fiberboard is what allowed this gorgeous piece of book-shelving art to come together. Without it, they wouldn’t have been able to hang it!
Their wall didn’t have the right framing to support the large structure. The illusion of a wall is what results from this. The boxes were attached, and the bookcase was born.
I don’t know about you, but I am so jealous of this couple’s kids! I would kill for this bookcase. I mean, look at it! If you have a large book collection, then you probably know how I feel.
If you were to create a custom bookcase, what would it look like?
