When we think of bookshelf, our minds usually conjure up images from IKEA. But why should you spend money on an expensive bookshelf, when you have wood boxes lying around at home?

With a little bit of creativity, you can turn a few wood boxes into a pretty bookshelf. Join four or five medium-sized wood boxes together, hammered in place with nails, and paint them a nice shade of color to create an inexpensive bookshelf that grabs attention while holding your previous books.

Just joining two wood boxes can create a nightstand with open storage. You can paint the boxes in a shade to complement the color of the room or to match the upholstery. Use the open storage space to decorate with pictures, or store books and knickknacks.
