it's a book... it's a shelf... it's a BOOK-shelf

you know of my obsession with pintrest.  i love it.  lurve.  it's a way to make me feel artistic and creative, and doesn't actually make me have to produce anything.

yeah, i know, i'm a quandary, wrapped in an enigma, wrapped in a big ole blanket of wtf.

one thing i loved on pintrest was the floating book shelf.  it was pinned originally from here .  and is just all kinds of awesome that i can't even begin to describe it.

so i just did it.

start out with your supplies.  a hard cover book (that you don't ever plan on reading again), 2 L brackets, and 8 screws, a pen, a drill with both a small drill bit and a screw bit

place the brackets flush with the 'raw' edge of the book, and mark the holes with the pen.

drill the holes.  try not to cry because you just DRILLED INTO A BOOK!!!!! 
(yes, i know, special level of hell for book destroyers, yada yada)

once the holes are drilled, screw in the brackets.

place the book where you want it (tip: use a level.  trust me), mark the holes, drill and attach with screws

not bad, huh? 

floating book shelf.  awesome.

according to hubby, it's very "me"
