Sometimes shelves get bogged down with essential storage items that aren’t very visually appealing. Baskets are one way to keep things organized and neat, but aren’t always the perfect fit for the space or are lacking in color and shape.
Measurements: Once you have your books in place, measure approximately 1 inch from the spine into the book. Mark this line as this is where you will cut your books so that all the spines are the same length out from the box.
Perfect cutting 2 end spines: When you are finished with the center spines, move on to the 2 end spines. The difference you will have with these is that you want to keep the face cover of the book on one and the back cover of the book on the other.
