Couple Saw This DIY Bookshelf Design Online, But They Had No Idea It Would Turn Out So Good
We all lived through a Pinterest phase at some point. No wonder – the page can easily get you hooked with all sorts of inspiring pictures, from design to fashion and photography.
In some cases those pictures can’t be just pinned and forgotten, they need to be made in real life. This was the case when Jessica and Sinclair Breen found a picture of a bookshelf online.
“When I showed [the picture to] Sinclair he almost had a heart attack,” Jessica told The Daily Mail. “We knew we had to try it.” That’s when the ball started rolling.
Jessica measured the wall space, took the inspiring picture with her and went to the graphic arts teacher that worked at the same school as her. With his help they soon knew what size panels to order and after spending $900, they had everything they needed to start building.
The project seemed fitting for the qualifying campaign for reality TV show The Block, so the couple started planning how to recreate their dream bookshelf
After measuring and designing the look, they ordered custom-made panels that cost them about $900
Then they made the boxes and arranged them on a fake MDF wall
After that they fixed the MDF onto the wall and attached the boxes
