Introduction: Bookshelf Hiding Old Window

Picture of Bookshelf Hiding Old Window

We made some additions to our offices and there were two windows that needed to be boarded up. I made this bookshelf to fit into the gap at the window. There is one of these bookshelves on each side of the window. They rest on the window sill and are also screwed into the wall in numerous places.

The bookshelf is perfectly suited to this space and nobody would guess that a window still exists behind the bookshelf.

We extended our office building and the window was now between two offices.

We built these bookshelves on either side of the window (the glass and window frame are still in pace, just hidden) in order to hide it and to use the space for books and other odds and ends.
