The First Bookshelf Attempt

For my first DIY bookshelf experiment, I transformed an old wooden ladder with a few layers of paint and some patterned chevron templates to add an extra bit of flair. I decorated the shelf with some antiques and homemade candles in Mason jars (recipe to come). This was extremely simple, so maybe next time I will actually try to build one 🙂
