Overview

With these 70 super projects and creative ideas, there’s a stylish shelf to fill every need.

Each project offers a practical solution to storage problems and looks great, too. Better still: they’re made from affordable materials and the techniques just couldn’t be easier. Even those baffled by hardware, hangers, and hooks will find all the technical information required to build and install a shelf with confidence. For those who want to start from scratch, here are simple woodworking skills to construct a variety of designs, from floating boxes to a useful kitchen station. Decorate an unfinished commercial shelf with mosaics, “mock leather,” ornaments, and paint, or create amazingly clever and unique shelves from mounted paint buckets, stepladders, planter boxes, and shower totes. Whether you need play shelves for a child or bedside shelves for an alarm clock or books, this is truly the one and only guide to “shelf expression.”

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Plenty of imaginative projects for making and personalizing shelving are provided in this instructional guide. Le Van (Hardware Style) begins with a review of hardware, shelf boards, and installation. From there, she moves on to discussing projects for decorating prefabricated shelves, using commercial shelving in unique ways, and creating shelves from everyday items such as watering cans, buckets, and skateboards. Her clear, well-written instructions are accompanied by a color photograph of the completed project that will inspire both experienced and amateur crafters. Recommended for midsize to large public library collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
