DIY Color-Coded Bookshelf

Are you all ready for what could quite possibly be the easiest DIY of all time?! It’s also super inexpensive and…wait for it…VERY colorful. Plus I thought this DIY color-coded bookshelf happened to be fitting for St. Patrick’s Day rainbow festivities.

You might recognize this fireplace from our living room makeover and the “how we decorated for Christmas” decor post. I had a ton of people ask about our fireplace books, and they’re so simple to make that I almost feel bad for calling them a DIY. You don’t have to rush out and buy a bunch of books to make an expensive rainbow shelf, instead, you just need three craft supplies and old books you already own…

All you have to do is cut down the card stock to size so that you can’t see the cover of the book, and crease the edges firmly.

Then use the clear tape to tape each end to the inside of front and back covers, and you’re all set!

Pretty nifty, right?! It does take some time to wrap each one to size, but hey, it’s cheap. Can’t win em’ all…
