How to Make Invisible Bookshelves

how to make invisible bookshelves

  1. Mark the middle of your book on the inside of the cover with a ruler and pen.
  2. Then, insert your L-shaped bracket in the book.
  3. Glue it on and strengthen this situation by screwing the bracket into the books as well as adding a few screw into the book. See the picture on the right.
  4. Add a ton of glue to the page facing the cover that has the L-bracket in it.
  5. Close the book and place something heavy on top for a day or so.
  6. Then, hang the book with the bracket upwards on the wall. See picture below.
  7. Stack other books on top, at least as high as your bracket so that your bracket becomes invisible.

  1. What a great idea! I’m looking at my kitchen walls and think I found the perfect spot for some favorite cookbooks! Thanks!

  2. What a unique take on a “bookshelf”. I’ve seen shelves made of books, but this is the first that tells how you did it. Thanks. I’m bookmarking this!

  3. I have been a fan of floating shelves but this is far better.

  4. This is very clever. I’ve never seen anyone use it in their home. Nice job.
