Looking for a way to upcycle an old spool? Why not turn it into a bookcase?

DIY Spool Bookcase

When we upcycle, we are taking a small – but important – step toward improving the environment.

If you do not buy something new, less new things have to be manufactured. The vast majority of manufacturing processes hurt the environment.

Every item you upcycle, you ensure one less item in a landfill somewhere, too. That’s always good.

This is one of the easiest and most versatile upcycling projects you can find on the web. It looks great painted, though it would look equally impressive bare!

What would you use this spool book case for?

You’ll need these materials:

  • Small Cable Spool
  • Wooden Dowels
  • 3-4 Swivel Wheel Casters
  • Molding Glue
  • Paint
  • Screws

And these tools:

  • Drill
  • Saw
  • Measuring Tape
