Quick Tip #13: Bench Bookshelf

I’ve got another décor Quick Tip for you, this one too is form Martha Stewart. What can I say – this woman is brilliant.

#13   If all the bookshelves you find in stores are too tall, too wide, or too unwieldy, consider stacking sturdy wooden benches to make a streamlined shelf that’s just right for your space. Search flea markets and second-hand shops for old benches – all they need is a lick of paint.

  1. love the idea

  2. Wow, this bench bookcase is one of the coolest ideas I’ve seen in a long time. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  3. This is a great idea. It looks super neat and tidy. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Martha. 😉 I also love her ideas. I am always trailing her site for new ones. Did she mention if they are just stacked or are they attached somehow?
