Jim Rosenau, of Berkley, California, has been making bookshelves from books for quite some time. He says the idea came from (mis)reading Nicholson Baker’s Books As Furniture. My first thought was… Are these really books? His answer..“Yes, they are really books. I remove some of the paper and replace it with a sturdy armature of salvaged lumber.”
Wine crates, made of 100% pine wood, are plentiful, functional, and oh so pretty!
Rearranged horizontically, these wine crate shelves give a different look than the unit below. It doesn’t really matter to me. I LOVE these crates!
Putting them on the wall to make a shelving unit is pure genius. If I didn’t live in an apartment, I would have done this long time ago.
I’ve already used wine corks to make a jewelry display board, why not use the case, right?
