Going industrial: BRODER-GORM shelving

Materials: BRODER poles, GORM shelves

1. Cut the GORM shelves to wanted length.

2. Paint, stain or wax the shelves to wanted color.

3. Put the system together.

Easy hack to a cool industrial look bookshelf. Why GORM shelves? Because they are cheaper and have a wine bottle rack!

Total cost around 100 dollars.

    Nice hack, but I don’t really see the point of the Gorm shelves. Go to the hardware store and have them cut some pine boards, and you’ll save about %50 on the cost of the shelves.
