What an awesome idea! Our library book sale is in just 2 weeks! Now I can pick up some books for more than just reading.

This is amazing! Love the disclaimer as well. I once (can not remember where) saw where someone after removing the doorknob covered a door in sawed off books and shelves, to disguise the door as a bookcase. I've always wanted to do that. Cheesy

hahaha Now there's a good use of those reader's digest condensed books! You can't even give those away. Wink

The shelf looks wonderful & tempting to try. If I make one in my new place, I'll be sure to show ya!

I saw something similar at The Container Store today that were expensive, 40-50 dollars each, plus they weren't as big as these. I like yours sooo much better, I didn't ever think of making some for myself.

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

My local Half Price Books sells Reader's Digest Condenced Books by the yard(literaly).  I could build a really long one, or make several levels.

Did you say the support books are supposed to be in front of where the wall studs are?  I may have to add more supports or it will bow in the middle.

I'm sure that you could add more supports if your shelf got very VERY long....you may want to add another hidden bracket to hang it by in the back, too.

I absolutely adore Half Price Books! I could spend a whole day just browsing there, but for books that I can buy by in quantity (a grocery bag full for $3 in the last 2 hours) I always look forward to our Friends of the Library sale.

LOVE THIS IDEA!  I am a book adict and bought some from Goodwill for a project that i did to cover up CD's and DVD's (b/c they are so ugly just sitting there) and ended up not needing them and now am stuck with tons of old books that I had no idea what to do with!  You are a lifesaver for the packrat in me...thanks!  Also love the bookshelf door idea!
