27169720 Create Your Own Floating BookShelves

So I have a rather vertical home.  And I thought a way to make my meager apartment look larger was to get rid of all the shelving units I had and put the books on the walls…but in a stylish way.  While looking around on tumblr I found ! really like invisible bookshelves. Like the ones above.

It’s interesting, artistic, and a good use of space.  I went out to buy them at the store and it was about $20+.  I hesitated on buying it, went home, and looked online to see if there was a cheaper option.  And i found this wonderful DIY.  It was simple and really fun!  You can find it on wikihow.  The directions were really simple.  And there’s even a comical video guide to help if necessary.  And after purchasing all the necessary materials i spent $25 on 4 shelves.  YAY!  The only down side to making you’re own is finding the base of your shelf.  DIY floating shelves require a sacrificial book to be the bottom.  The instructions tell you to choose a book that you’ll never read again.  Instead of choosing one already in my library, I found $1 books, old college textbooks, and books with humorous titles to be my base.  My shelves turned out great and I had such a great time making them.

Of course if you aren’t the do-it-yourself type you can find the Umbra design by simply by typing it in google.  I found it on Barnes and Noble and eBay.

Yay for housing books!

and the extra book shelf is a Flybrary shelf from organize it

    What a great blog. I spend days on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an amazing post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
