Do you live in an apartment or house with extra high vaulted ceilings and looking for a bookshelf that will utilize the space all the way to the ceiling? Build your own diy stackable vaulted ceiling bookshelf with small garden plants! First measure from the floor to the ceiling to figure out how high your bookshelf will need to be according to the height of your ceiling. Once you have your measurements you will need to purchase the wood. Almost any kind of wood can be used depending on your preference and taste. We purchased pine wood from Home Depot for our shelves for about $90 dollars. The wood stain, shower curtain rods, plants and wood screws cost us another $100 dollars. So this project, when all the items needed are found cheap, cost about $200 dollars in all. For this step by step diy project we will show you our bookshelf build in pictures below. With your measurements, you can buy the supplies needed and create and build one yourself. Use the pictures below as a guide and get creative!
