This couple’s incredible homemade bookshelf is straight out of an interior design magazine



Even though e-books and audiobooks are dominating in recent years, good old print books are still being read. According to the Pew Research Center, 67 percent of americans read a print book every year, making it still the most popular

So, if you’re one of those people who still enjoy holding a pring book in your hands and having your own copy, where do you store these?

Pay attention to this question because if you’re into DIY projects, then you’ll love this one.

When Jessica and Sinclair Breen finished building their brand new house in Australia, Jessica came across an image of a fascinating bookshelf.

“When I showed it to Sinclair he almost had a heart attack”, Jessica told FEMAIL in 2017. “We knew we had to try building one”.

It looked complicated, but Jessica and Sinclair were prepared to take the project. They shared their plans with a graphic arts teacher, who “magically” gave them the dimensions for all the panels they needed.

It took the couple weeks of planning and an estimated $900 AUD expense.

In order to create the masterpiece, Sinclair built a fake medium density fiberboard (MDF), which made it easier to arrange the custom boxes in the circular pattern.

Once the couple had the supplies and got to work it took them 16 hours to complete the project.

“It was a huge process, but it was so worth it”.

The end result is definitely something that any book lover would dream of!

For people who are interested in creating something similar, Jessica shares her own advice.

“Google and Pinterest are really helpful!”

If you’re not the type of person who is into DIY projects, but are looking for a new home, the couple’s home, which features the awesome book shelf is on the market.

Are you as excited from this book shelf as we are?

I don’t think I could build anything like this.

Do you think you’d be able to build a similarly amazing book shelf yourself?
