Stack 'em up bookshelves!

It looks like any old shelf. Right? Wrong. Look closely and you'll see that the books themselves are integral part of the structure! See how it all comes together after the jump!

Make sure that you have good, sturdy books that'll serve as your built-in support!

Next layer ...

And you could keep going ....

And this one for those who like it simple, built in bookends!

  4. FUN. I like this idea for a teens room. It kinda forces them to keep them organized.

  5. These are kind of cool, but am I right in thinking you would never be able to read those books that are supporting the shelves, or the whole thing would collapse? They'd just be for show? It's not very functional if that's the case!

    1. I was actually thinking about the support books --- what if they're not the same height? :P

  6. Love it! It's very simplistic and almost futuristic-looking in it's minimalism :) I like it!

  7. This is really cool! I feel like I'd have to go with the single shelf, but I love the whole idea!

  8. Oh gosh, I wouldn't know where to stop with these - I'd probably build them so high they'd topple and crush me!
    At least death by books would be a good way to go... maybe D=
