My buddy who disassembles old barns in southern idaho had given me some blue pained 1x12 redwood planks with some cool old worn blue paint on them. I thought they would look great as bookshelves.
Pallet Magazine Rack:
Found some pallets in an alley, cut them up, added a bottom with extra wood, screwed it to the wall and put our magazines and books in it. It looks awesome.
I also made the lampstand log.
