Turning Old Books into Beautiful Floating Shelves

Bella Breakdown
Do you have any old coffee table books that look great but you don’t really read anymore?

With two L-brackets, screws and drill you can turn that into a fabulous Pinterest worthy shelf in no time!

Build the base starting out with a larger book and position between the back cover and the rest of the book, spacing them an equal distance from the sides of the book.


Screw the bracket into the pages and hot glue the back cover to the L-bracket.

Using a level, mark on the wall where the holes of your L-brackets land and screw in wall anchors then screw in through your bracket securing your new shelf to the wall.

Stack the rest of your books on top and now you have a fabulous statement making storage solution.
