DIY : Invisible Bookshelves

Ever since we did this post on bookish gifts I've been obsessed with the idea of Floating Bookshelves. The  Umbra Floating Bookshelves are quite pricey,  so when I saw this DIY invisible bookshelf on Pinterst I had to give it a try and it worked like a charm ! Making 3 bookshelves cost ~15$  including the cost of nails and hammer/screw driver

  • L-Shaped Brackets (Home Depot, shelving aisle)
  • Screws/Nails
  • Hammer/Screw Driver

Since there are  brick walls in my apartment I had to use screws with a masonry bit. I'm sure you can use a nail and hammer depending on the surface. This is how May December Home set hers up.


And here is my finished product:


  1. That looks great (p.s: love your brick walls - jealous!!). It is a wonderful way to display 1) your favourite books and/or 2) books with beautiful covers :)

  2. These are beautiful! When I get out of the apartment-style living, I will definitely have to think about these!

  3. It' also a great way to decorate a room with books that have similar colors. I just hope I get a deposit back with all the holes in the brick (: It's much easier and cleaner to do on a wall.

  4. I bet if you used those extra strong Command stickys and only stacked paperbacks it might work.

  5. Interesting! I live in an apartment now but when I move I am SO trying this out!! Thanks for sharing.
