We hear a lot about repurposing and reuse today and thanks to sites like Pinterest it’s never been easier to get inspiration and instructions. Today I stumbled across a fantastic feature bookcase and reading on discovered it was made from cardboard, after a quick scoot around the net I discovered this is a ‘thing’, and I just had to share some of it with you!
Spiral Cardboard Bookshelf
This is the first shelf I stumbled upon, leading me to research this piece and it’s absolutely beautiful. I can’t find detailed instructions on how to make it, but there is some information on the link.
Basic Cardboard Bookcase
While you may not think of cardboard being strong, the maker says that if you make these 20 inches wide or less, they will carry heavy, solid book. You can paint or decoupage them in any design and they look pretty cool too!
Tall Colourful Cardboard Bookcase
This one probably isn’t going to take the same weight, but handy all the same and the perfect shelf for some featured sets of books and maybe even some memorabilia.
Cartoon Cardboard Furniture
These pieces would look amazing in any children’s room and we love the quirkiness of them. These are made by a group called the Cartonnistes, a Parisian artist collective founded by Eric Guiomar. He’s written several books on the subject, linked below but they’re in French!
