My children and I are certified bookworms. Every time we go to the mall, we always come out with at least one book each. It is no wonder, therefore, that we’ve been adding bookshelves approximately every quarter. My husband is going crazy! He says that we’ve occupied almost all possible areas for bookshelves and cabinets.

These book slings are so versatile you can change the look every now and then.

Although we’ve already donated some of our books in the public library, we still do not have enough space for additional bookshelves. We came across this DIY idea – instead of putting up shelves, we made these book slings! These aren’t only space-savers, but they also save us from looking at the same, old, usual cabinets.

I firmly believe that every bookworm is very grateful to the person who came up with this idea. These are very easy to install. Plus, you can change the look when you want to. Why don’t you try this out at home? This is functional, versatile, and easy to make!
