Mid-century items are getting harder and harder to find at bargain prices as their popularity increases. That's one reason I love this DIY bookshelf project so much. You can create the Mid-century look without breaking the bank, and you get a little satisfaction from doing it yourself. A few garage sale book shelves are the starting point for this, and all that was required was some glue, a drill, a bit of paint and a set of legs.
A quick and easy project that will give you a little more storage space.
Two old shelves are glued and screwed together to create a new unit.
The mid-century legs can be bought used, but you can also find lots of new legs like these online or even at your local hardware store. This is a great project with easy to follow instructions, Check it out at Maggie Overby Studios.
