Last week in Friday Finds I posted about some dream bookcases that any bibliophile would love to have in their home so this week I decided that I should post some more affordable or realistic options. Below you will find some examples of how to spruce up your old bookcases and some more adventurous DIY projects for the crafty readers. Enjoy!
Adding a pop of colour to an old dresser can create a fun unique bookcase. This is a relatively easy DIY project that will update your old furniture just choose a colour to match your existing colour scheme and get painting.
This project is another easy way to update your bookcase, just use fabric or wallpaper in a design that catches your fancy to cover the back of the case and you have a one of a kind bookcase for your literary loves.
If you prefer a more rustic feel for your bookcase this idea is a must, all you need are some wooden crates to stack and you have rough and ready storage. For a more polished look you can paint the crates, as seen in the second picture, to fit in with your room.
For the more adventurous book lover this is a great way to combine your crafty talents and love of books. For this one you are going to need to get your hands on a wooden spool but it’s worth it for this crafty little addition.
