this one gets a little extra attention b/c it has a story.

ariel emailed me pics of these custom bookshelves her boyfriend built from recycled wood.

  1. I am so in love with that idea! I can't even see the bracketing for the shelves. Any idea how they did that?

  7. That is flipping amazing. I would totally rip her off but... my walls would probably collapse under the weight.

  12. What a great idea! That definitely makes sense to put the wallpaper on the underside of the shelf. What a nice pop of color.

  17. Is it possible to find out how they attached them? Is the bracket on top of the shelf? Did they screw them in from the top or from the bottom? Are there special brackets? So many questions....

  18. That is most certainly copy-worthy.

    I love how you have a whole section of your blog dedicated to just bookcases; pretty fly. I too have a penchant for books and bookcases. My husband thinks I have too many books but I strongly disagree.

  27. How are these shelves mounted to your wall? Nicely done, by the way.

  28. Echoing all the others who want to know .. HOW, exactly, are these shelves hung? No brackets I can see.. and it would have to be some really heavy-duty system.

    Of course, many years have passed since this post (I found it via a search for DIY ideas for wall shelves for books), and I doubt we'll ever see an answer, especially after all the other spam posts above. :( But maybe???
