Tetris Inspired Bookshelf

This Tetris inspired bookshelf from Brave Space Design is a cool concept worthy of a DIY idea shout-out.  The price tag for a 10 block set (like the one pictured below) costs over $2800!  Wow!  Very cool concept but that price tag might sting a bit.  This would be a great DIY project for Tetris fans out there that don't want to shell out almost 3 Gs  for a plywood bookshelf.  Heck, if there are any Tetris fans out there that want to shell out almost 3 Gs for a bookshelf I know a certain Sawdust … [Continue reading...]

Love, love loving this inexpensive diy wall lamp from The Homesteady which cost less than $40.  Most of that expense probably went into the bulb.  Those Edison bulbs are expensive!  The bracket would be very inexpensive to make and light socket kits are around $15 so depending on the bulb you use, this could be a very inexpensive […]
