1. Corner Bookshelf
You can take a double ladder and separate it, turning it into two wonderful bookshelves. If you don’t have a double ladder, just take two smaller ladders and you’ll get the same effect. This is a great rustic looking bookshelf that is as useful as it is decorative and the sides are the perfect width for holding those books in place.Source/Tutorial: etsy.com
