May 13/Julie Remember my plans to add some new wall storage in the shop with some old dresser drawers? I was so excited about the drawer “shelving” that I had seen at Anthropologie in NYC that I was hoping to create a similar look in the Home Made shop. As I got into the project, I was forced to come to terms with the fact that my drawers would not look like Anthropologie’s because they just weren’t that interesting. No cool chipping paint or rustic wood. Drawer Shelves: After | Home Made

You've all seen these invisible bookshelves, right? The books stack horizontally and and appear to just float on the wall. They look really cool, but they can cost a bundle. Fortunately, they're easy and cheap to make from simple L-brackets. A bit of careful measuring and making sure they're level, and you're ready to start stacking. Just make sure they're well anchored to the wall! Invisible Bookshelves
Got books? How about a nice Book Bookshelf? - HOME SWEET HOME Soooooooo, our Friends of the Library have books left over after our annual Book Sale, and we offered gleaning rights to the Women's Shelter and the Children's Shelter, and the VA Hospital, and various other groups, and there were STILL books left over. I hate the thought of books going to the dumpster, or to the landfill!!! But what's a body to DO??!!!
