I built this book rack using scrap wood and modified plans from the Full Length Plate Rack. It was a really straightforward build, and functions very well as vertical storage that takes up little space. I predrilled, screwed and glued all of the joints, vs. stapling.

I had the same shelf for books in the dorm. I had a lot of books during college. And not only books. I had huge stacks of paper with research papers on my desk. I did not even know where to store these papers. Later, I started ordering my research papers at the Papersowl writing service. It saved me a little space on the table and time, lol. I hope my bookcase is still holding books in that room.

Great minimalistic design for children's room. I'd love to see it done step be step. Or should I bu a ready to go one and only paint it white? I encourage my children to tidy up in their room but due to newness of a flat and not enough space it's a bit hard and I guess buying such furniture s a great decision as well as ordering in to save my time from evening school for cleaning up and tidying up a bit.
