Shelf Life Part 2: Found Objects & Stackable Colour

If my books and treasures could be elevated on walls up high, I would choose brightly coloured shelves of great ingenuity. I would find a way to use plumber's piping, cardboard boxes, vintage suitcases and old branches dropped in the garden. I would fill my house with colour and character stacked in DIY shelving, just so I could be surrounded by my amazing display units.
