Here are some Tetris shelves I recently completed for our guest/reading room. We needed some more space in the room and with these we were able to get rid of a bookshelf.

This was a pretty fun project overall although the glue up and finish was kind of a pain. It adds some nice color to the room though!

I like it from their shelves Tetris Brian! Very original idea! What material did you use? I like to use MDF, despite the dust it raises. CONGRATULATIONS!

These certainly add a whimsical splash of color to the room, not to mention the display possibilities.

Very nicely done. – Len

Josh – I anchored screws into the wall and put some hangers that would be used for picture frames on a few of the corners of the shelves. They seem to be up there pretty solid and have held up so far.
