First DIYer ever.

Time for today, and the first ever DIY or (Do it yourself) Project.

The invisible Bookshelf.
Items.
1.Decent sized book thick enough for a L Bracket. (Note get a book you really don't mind ruining)
2. L Bracket
3.Small wood screws and large wood screws.
4.Glue
5. A Pen
6. Tape measure or Ruler
7. Carpet Knive
8. Books for that creepy floating bookshelf look
9. Power drill (unless ur popeye)                              





                                                                                                                                 Step 1.
Measure the middle point, make a mark and set down a bracket, draw and outline and measure again. Make a hole deep enough that the bracket will be flushed. Do this to the back or bottom of the book.

                                                                      Step 2
                                      Use your knife again to cut a notch for the bracket.
                                                                                                                                  Step 3
 Use the drill to secure the L bracket to the book. Make sure you put pressure so that the screws dont rise up.                     










                                                                                                                  Step 4
                                                  Glue the books cover to the inside of the book. Apply ALLOTTTT of pressure to the book. Leave it under something heavy, (Like MOAR books) overnight.
WE NEED MORE GLUE!!!
Step 5
Attach to a wall. Make sure to find a stud.




                                                                    Step 6
Load up some books.
Even Borat agrees this is awesome!!!
