Anthropologie-Inspired Quotation Bookends

DIY Anthropologie-Inspired Mini Bookcase

Happy Friday!  If you happen to be a fan of HGTV Magazine, you probably noticed the fun Anthropologie quotation marks bookends on the cover of the latest issue.  I thought they were such a great idea to add interest to a bookcase, so I decided that I needed to make a set of my own.  The Anthropologie version commands a whopping $168, but I was able to make mine for virtually nothing.  

We had some scrap 2×6 pieces of wood leftover from building in the windows on our shop, so I grabbed a few of them for this project.  I created my template in my Silhouette Studio program using the Impact font and cut the template cardstock.  You can always print yours on paper and then cut it out with scissors to get the same result.

I clamped the wood to my workbench and cut the quotation marks out using my jigsaw with a scroll blade.  Once both bookends were cut, I needed to sand them smooth.  I clamped them into a vise and then cut up some 80 sanding belts to take off the extra material.  I found that using a piece of thin scrap wood gave me enough leverage to really smooth out all of the edges.

Once the bookends were sanded, I used some wood filler to patch up any imperfections in the wood and let it dry.
I then sanded them completely smooth using 220 grit sandpaper.

I loved the look of the gold bookends, but they wouldn’t really fit in on my bookcase, so I decided to finally try out the Modern Masters Metal Effects
kit I got from the SNAP conference earlier this year.  I had been wanting to find a way to use it and this seemed the perfect project.

I started by painting two coats of the primer on, letting it dry for 30 minutes between coats.

After about an hour or so I was ready to paint the oxidizing iron paint onto the bookends.  Again, I followed the directions and painted two coats of the iron paint and then let it dry completely.  

Once I was ready to apply the rust activator, I took them outside and sprayed some on.  I definitely recommend placing them on something for this step as the rust will bleed onto whatever surface they are sitting on.  I used a few extra pieces of scrap wood.

I sprayed the rust activator on and also brushed some on in areas that I felt needed a little more of the rust.  It was really cool to watch it oxidizing before my eyes.

 This step is really where you can play around with it until you’re happy with how much rust you’ve got.  I applied two coats of the rust activator and was pretty happy with how they looked.

 I let them dry for 24 hours before putting them on my bookcase.

I love the way they turned out!  They had just the right amount of rust on them and they look old pieces of iron rather than scrap pieces of wood.  They are a great addition to my IKEA Billy bookcase hack in the den.

 Plus, did I mention that this project was basically free?  The Modern Masters Metal Effects kit I have is a small quantity, but I barely used any and still have plenty left for other projects.  I’m thinking some DIY, rusted wall decor is in my near future.  There are so many ways this can be used!  Plus it was a fairly quick and simple project, which is always fun.

 I may even make a few more of these and give them as Christmas gifts.  They’re such a fun idea for book lovers.  Have you ever tried this paint?  I’d love to see how you used it!

20 Functional and Decorative Bookshelves You Can DIY

DIY Anthropologie-Inspired Mini Bookcase

Bookshelves are not only decorative, they are often necessary. If you have loads of books or even if you have only a few and want to display them nicely, we have a great collection of 25 DIY bookshelves that you can build in very little time.

Some of these use recycled materials, which makes them cheap and that’s our favorite kind of DIY. Others are knock-offs, another DIY that we love. Some of them are so easy that you can build them from scratch.

From pallets and ladders to ropes and wine crates, there is a bookshelf in here for everyone.

Whether you need bookshelves for the kids’ rooms, your cookbooks, or any other books or collectibles, you can create these gorgeous bookshelves in less than a day.

Paint them, stain them, or just leave them all natural. They are easy to build, cheap, and a great way to add some functioning décor to your home.

Anthropologie Knock Off Bookcase

Imagine paying out over a thousand bucks for a bookcase! And, it doesn’t even hold that many books. In fairness, the price of this one in the catalog does include a vintage set of cookbooks but still.

That’s just way too much for a small bookshelf, especially when you can DIY. You just need a few pieces of wood and a couple of hours to spare and you can create this stunning display case for those favorite books.

If you have any vintage cookbooks, be sure to put them in there then it will be just the one from Anthropologie.

Rolling Bookshelf

This great rolling bookshelf doubles as a table and it’s fabulous. You will need a wooden cable spool which you can probably get at a thrift store or yard sale. You also need wooden dowels that will help to keep the books in place.

Just add casters and you have your very own rolling library cart or a really neat side table. This one looks great distressed so paint it whatever color you want and then sand just a bit to give it that great aged look.

It’s easy to build and depending on what you can get the cable spool for, it could be really cheap.

Wine Crate Hanging Bookshelves

If you have some wooden wine crates, you can build these amazing bookshelves that hang right on the wall. You just need to cover the insides of the crates with paper or fabric, if you want, that is. You could also leave them rustic looking if you prefer.

The books will stay nicely in place and you can have several of them on the walls. You could also add wooden dowels if needed to really hold those books and collectibles in place. These are great because they’re cheap and you can get a ton of books on each one.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Designsponge

Repurposed Drawer Bookshelves

An old useless dresser drawer makes a great hanging bookshelf and if you have an old dresser with broken drawers that you aren’t using, you can make this one for nothing.

The map behind it is an excellent touch but you could also go with fabric, scrapbook paper, or just anything you want to give it the color and design that you want.

For kids’ rooms, use colorful scrapbooking paper or use pictures from old cooking magazines for the kitchen. It will hold several books and it’s cheap and easy to put together.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Olivebites

Plumbing Pipe and Wood Bookshelf

You just never know what you can build until you get started. This great bookshelf is made from plumbing pipes and wood and it looks great. It has a very modern design to it but still a bit rustic.

If you have plumbing pipe that you aren’t using, this is a great way to put it to good use. The building plans are really simple and you can complete it in less than a weekend, depending on how fast you work.

You can also alter the location and the size or number of the shelves to meet your specific needs.

Recycled Wood Bookshelves

Recycled wood can be used for so many useful projects. Take this amazing bookshelf for instance. If you are using recycled wood, from fences, barns, etc., and you want to dress it up a bit, add some contact paper.

Once you have decided where to place the shelves, just cover them with some sort of paper or fabric. The wood will act as a base for all of those books and you can give it any color or design that you want.

Build those shelves all the way to the wall with that old wood and then just give your shelves a little facelift.

Hanging Book Display

This hanging book display is perfect for kids’ rooms. It allows them to keep their favorite books on the wall right next to the bed so you’re all set for bedtime story time. You need fabric to make it, plus a couple of curtain rod brackets and a few other supplies.

It’s really easy to create and great for using up fabric that’s leftover from other projects. Plus, it’s lightweight and it hangs perfectly on the wall, giving you enough room to store several books and still keeping them within reach of your little ones.

Make several of them if you have room and just install them on top of each other.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Pennycarnival

Dresser Bookshelf

A regular dresser can be utilized for bookshelf space by simply adding spice racks to the sides. You can get wooden spice racks for pretty cheap, although you should measure first to make sure that you get them the right size.

Paint them to match your dresser and then attach them to the dresser’s sides. They work perfectly to hold a number of books and if you line both sides of the dresser, you should have more than enough space to hold all of your books.

You can also just attach the spice racks to the wall if you don’t have a dresser that you can use.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Ikeahackers

DIY Corner Bookshelves

Corner bookshelves are great. They’re attractive, they don’t take up much space, and they hold tons of books. You can actually build your own corner bookshelf units that will give you plenty of space for storing books, knick-knacks, and other similar items.

What’s great about this project is even if you are just now building the shelving unit, it will look as if it was built right into the wall when your house was first constructed. It’s a really easy project and one that you can finish in a weekend.

If you have room, do a couple in the corners of your room to really have a lot of space for your books.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Remodelaholic

Recycled Wood and Leather Bookshelf

A couple of old leather belts and a slab of wood will give you the perfect pairings to create this beautiful and very unique bookshelf. You could also use this for knick-knacks but it’s perfect for holding cookbooks or any other books that you need to store.

You just make loops with the belts and insert the wood. You do have to nail the wood in through the belts to make it secure. You could make more than two shelves if you want which would make this one really great for holding a lot of different books.

It would be perfect for the den or a boy’s bedroom.

DIY Cube Storage Bookcase

This bookcase is designed to store those handy canvas cubes although you don’t necessary have to use it that. You could simply stack books on it and it’s much easier to build than you may think.

You could also go to your local furniture store and easily lay down a couple hundred bucks for a unit this but we so much prefer the DIY way. If needed, toggle the measurements just a bit to meet your specific needs, especially if you are planning to just add books and not those canvas cubes.

This is a great weekend project that will give you more than enough room to store all of the books in your house.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Ana-white

Repurposed Wooden Crate Bookshelves

A decorative wooden crate will cost you less than $10 if you buy it brand new. Once you get it home, cut it in half and you will have the makings of two great little bookshelves that are perfect for kids’ rooms.

Paint those halves whatever color you want or give them a new coat of stain if you are planning to put them in the living room. Then just mount your new shelves onto the wall using a couple of “L” brackets for each one.

You can stick something in the bottom if your books are relatively thin so that they won’t fall through the crack.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Extraordinareality

Recycled Ladder Shelves

An old ladder can actually be used as a bookshelf in many different ways.

You can either stand it up against the wall, put two together and insert wooden slats to hold your books, or you can even hang the ladder up on the wall or in a corner and use the slats for books.

There are so many different uses for ladders when it comes to bookshelves and all of them are easy to do and won’t take much time. To build a leaning bookshelf, just take the ladder apart and then use the steps to create shelves to hold books.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Prettyhandygirl

Salvaged Drawer Modular Bookshelf

Old drawers just dressed up a bit and stacked on top of each other will create a beautiful bookcase to display your favorite books or collections. Just paint or stain the drawers, add some contact paper to the inside and then stack.

Secure the drawers together with drywall screws. You can add as many as you want as long as you screw them all together and you can create any design with them that you want, as well. Put them in the corner and create a corner bookshelf or line them up a wall.

They look great and work really well for holding just about anything.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Craftynest

Upside Down Bookshelves

If you want something really unique, these upside bookshelves are great. They really look as if the shelf is upside down and the books are just hanging there. To make this one, you will need a bit of elastic, a board, a stapler and some brackets to hang the shelf.

You can add as many or as few books as you want and this is definitely going to be a conversation starter when people visit your home.

The books are actually held in place by the elastic and it’s very easy to take them down and put them back up when you’re finished reading them.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Instructables

Leaning Bookshelves with Lighting

LED lighting gives these leaning bookshelves a great look and they are super easy to make. They resemble ladders and look they are literally just leaning on the wall, although they are very sturdy.

The lighting makes them look really expensive but they aren’t and you can easily build these in less than a weekend. If you have a dark corner somewhere that needs a little lift, these would be perfect.

Plus, the lighting will help you to find the books that you want and the overall look is elegant and really beautiful.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Instructables

Driftwood Bookshelf

Add those books to a great driftwood shelf that you can actually make for nothing if you have a chance to get to the beach.

If you can’t get your hands on driftwood, you could use just about any wood that you can find outdoors, although the driftwood really does give it a great tropical look. You literally just hang brackets and then attach the driftwood.

If you can get ahold of several pieces, you could create an entire wall of driftwood shelves to store your books or anything else you want to put up there.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Designsponge

Secret Bookshelf Door

Install a bookshelf that doubles as a secret door. Why? Because you can. This is a great way to hide away closets if you want and you get a bookshelf at the same time. You literally create a bookshelf from the door of whatever room you are hiding.

Make sure that you add something at the bottom of each shelf to keep the books in place when you are opening and closing the door. Just a tiny lip will do and you will be amazed at how this looks when you have it finished.

It’s easy to do and something that you can complete in a weekend.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Manmadediy

DIY Mantel Bookshelf

If you have an old fireplace mantel that you aren’t using, why not turn it into a functional bookshelf? This is another super easy project and one that won’t cost a fortune.

The mantel acts as the base for the bookshelf and this is a great way to add a little décor to an otherwise boring wall. Plus, you can hand stockings from it just a real fireplace. Just paint or stain the old mantel and then add color to the back for contrast.

This is such a beautiful bookcase when it’s finished and it won’t take you longer than a couple of hours to complete.

DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Fudgebananaswirl

Old Door Corner Bookshelf

If you don’t really want to build a corner bookshelf but you want the look, this bookcase made from old doors is perfect. There is little work involved here and very little cost if you have an old door that you can use.

You need to cut the door in half and then use rounded pieces of wood to create the shelving. This is such a beautiful shelf and one that is much easier to build than it looks.

It also fits perfectly into the corner so it’s not taking up needed space in your room.

10 DIY Inspiring Bookshelf Designs

DIY Anthropologie-Inspired Mini Bookcase

If you’re an avid reader who is looking for a creative way to display your respectable book collection, if you’re tired of ordinary bookshelves you can find in just about any home, and if you would a unique display that tells a story of your personal style, than you’re going to love these DIY bookshelf designs.

Telephone bookshelf

Creative DIY telephone bookends

This one-of-a-kind bookend display puts those old phones you have lying around to good use once again. You will need 2 old phones, 2 pieces of thin metal 1.5” wide cut into 7.

5” long strips, 2 pieces of felt in any color you choose cut just a bit smaller than the metal strips, 2 flathead screws, 2 drill bits (one a bit larger than the other), 1 can of metal spray paint in whatever color you would , a cordless drill, and a hot glue gun or whatever glue you have on hand.

Elsie and Emma from ABeautifulMess will surely give you  better idea of how this should be done.

Old ladder bookshelf

Old ladder turned bookshelf

That old ladder cluttering up the garage that may be too unsafe to climb on can easily be turned into a secure, creative way to display your prized book collection.

  Decide if you would a 90 degree corner bookshelf or whether you would to display it along a straight wall. Mount it to the wall using 4 ‘L’ brackets to support the weight.

Now, let your new bookshelf speak for itself as it is sure to be a conversation starter.

Invisible bookshelf idea

DIY invisible wall bookshelves

Instead of your beautiful well-read leather bound or cloth books taking up extra room on the bookcase turn them into display shelves that can hold more books or other valuable items. Steven & Chris from CBC have the full tutorial for you. You can get it here.

Glued Anthro plywood bookshelf

Reclaimed wood (door)

An old door most would only think of using for fire wood can easily serve as an antique, rustic bookshelf.

 For a flat-backed shelf, cut two openings at the bottom of the door big enough to slide a brick or some other form of stability into and attach pieces of wood to the flat side of the door using nails or screws, or cut your door in half for a corner shelf or three-sided display. Or buy it for $450 on Etsy!

Build to Organize Challenge – DIY Pipe Shelves for the Bathroom

DIY Anthropologie-Inspired Mini Bookcase

This year I’m teaming up with 38 other bloggers for a series of monthly DIY challenges – every month I will be posting a themed project post on the 15th and then a round up of my favourite shared projects on the 30th!

Our first challenge of the year is the Build to Organize Challenge and I’ve created some extra shelving storage in our main bathroom with these DIY pipe shelves with simple pine boards!

For the past year or so we’ve had this cabinet in our upstairs hallway – it’s a great cabinet, and it’s been holding random cleaning supplies and things sunblock and travel sized toiletries. I’d really to relocate this cabinet to a bedrooms, which means finding a new home for all those objects.

And so, the creation of these bathroom shelves!

Chris and I really the rustic/industrial look of pipe shelves and thought they would work really well with the shiplap in our main bathroom.

There is enough space to hold all our supplies (and then some) and there’s room under the bottom shelf for the upstairs litter boxes.

These shelves use regular pipe parts that you can get at your local hardware store. To create the shelves I used the following ½” pipe:

8 x pipe, 18” length (for uprights)

8 x pipe, 12” length (to support shelves)

8 – flanges

6 x Tees

2 x elbows

2 x caps

I wiped down all the pipe pieces with a degreaser on a cloth and then gave everything a coat of paint using Rust-Oleum Universal spray paint in oil rubbed bronze.  Once the paint was dry everything was screwed together!

Actually installing the shelf uprights is easier with two people so one person can hold the upright while the other makes sure to mark where the screws will go into the wall – use a level!

Once your first upright is installed and you’re marking the placement for your second, make sure they are level – we found adjusting the height of the bottom pipe or cap the easiest way to make small adjustments.

The shelves themselves are made from some 11” wide pine boards with a little special walnut stain and a few coats of poly.

We love our new shelves and I’m happy to say that the red cabinet is ready to be emptied and ready to moved to it’s new home!

Because you can make lots of inspired things that will easily remind you of furniture, jewelry and home decor that you’ve seen at Anthropologie!

Our projects use a variety of materials. If you are new to doing a specific type of project, such as woodworking or jewelry making, we recommend you ask a friend or family member to be your DIY buddy.

They may have helpful tips so that you stay on track, save money doing the project and get that perfect Anthropologie looks that you adore so much.

Remember that you can be their DIY buddy on another project as a Thank You!

You’ll be pleased to see that we have projects here for beginners or more advanced DIY-ers. But one thing most of our projects have in common – they are going to take you at least a weekend to complete.

Why? Well, Anthropologie’s style is more intricate and detailed. So between drying paint or finishes, adding other types or details, these are not the type of projects you can do quickly.
