!Special way to decorate the wall, store the books and make people stunned

Drill + screws
Rubber bands

Step 2: Hanging the Angles

Note: You should hang the angles in reasonable distance one from each other , this for saving room for many  books

Step 3: Preparation the Books

The first book that we want to place on each shelf we must prepare in such a way that hides the shelf underneath and support the books above it.
For this purpose we use a rubber band as shown in the pictures

Step 4: Place the Books on the "supporting" Book

After we closed the first book on each shelf it seems that it hides the shelf

Step 5: The Final Step

Put some books on every shelf, notice that the shelf can handle the load.

Fill the wall shelves, add joy and unique beauty into the workqstudy room or living room, and most importantly
Read books - it helps to succeed!

    Most of the other ones destroy the bottom book. This one is super because it doesn't. I have small kids and have been preaching to them for years about not tearing up their books so now that they are a little older for me to destroy a book in order to make a shelf would be a double standard that my 11 year old would call me on in a heartbeat. This method is so much better.
