Metamorphosis Monday~A Different Kind of Bookshelf

For Met Monday I am going to show you a little book shelf I 'built' last year...

All you need are a few books, double-stick mounting tape, and some L-brackets.

Run the mounting tape along the edges of the back page of the book you will use as the base. When you stick the pages together it will form a pocket.

Measure the width of the book and mount the L-brackets on the wall accordingly..making sure the L-brackets will fit inside of the pockets.

Set a few more books on top and voila! A "book-shelf"!
Visit Between Naps on the Porch for other fabulous ideas!
OH! And since I have your attention....stay tuned for an announcement and a GIVEAWAY on Tuesday!!

Here's a little peek at the GIVEAWAY!!
