Adding door knobs as legs to my bookshelf was so simple. It took less than 10 minutes and looks super chic.
An unexpected bonus to adding door knobs as legs was it stopped the bookshelf from wobbling!
Step 1: Materials
Door Knobs - I bought 3 ceramic from Anthropologie for a corner bookshelf, if you are using a standard bookshelf use 4 door knobs. Also, make sure the door knobs don't come to a point at the tip of the door knob because that will scuff your floor.
Hand Drill and drill bit - the drill bit should be the same size as the bolt on your door knobs
Step 2: Before
Step 3: Adding the Door Knob Legs
Simple directions. Just drill a pilot hole the same size as the bolts on the door knobs. Use your hand to turn the bolts into the pilot holes. If you make the right size pilot holes this is really easy. You may want to practice on a piece of scrap wood first to make sure.
