I recall an infomercial a few years back for a little plastic triangle that stuck in a corner, between two walls, to make a small corner shelf. I don’t remember the exact name of the product, but I do remember that the commercial exhausted all the obvious self/shelf puns: “shelf esteem,” “shelf confidence,” “shelf defense,” “shelf-employed,” etc., etc. So I’ll forgo the obvious opportunities this topic offers for shelf-referential humor and just get down to business.

  13. I first misread this as top ten shaving projects.

    Now that I think about it, DIY/maker shaving projects would be awesome.

    These are perfect bookshelves for different personalities of a bookworm. I like the resourcefulness of numbers 10, 9 and 5, the interesting design of number 8 and the impressive structure of number 5. It matches on every room. Great ideas!
