DIY Bookshelf Out of Surplus Wood
If you have scrap wood leftover from a remodeling project, this DIY bookshelf craft is perfect so that your wood won’t go to waste! We got our reclaimed wood scraps and paint from EcoBuilding Bargains!
- Woods of varying sizes
- Paint & brushes
- Painter’s tape
- Strong adhesive (wood glue, glue gun)
1- Clean the surfaces of your wood pieces to rid of any debris.
2- Paint the wood pieces with the color(s) of your choosing.
3- Let the paint dry and then paint a second coat. If you want, paint the two sides of the wood different colors so that you have a more striking shelf.
4- Glue together your wood pieces to make the bookshelf by putting glue along the overlapping edges.
5- Let the glue dry completely, place your books in the bookshelf, and enjoy!
