My daughter needed a small bookshelf for her DVDs and smaller books. We made this out of 1x2s to make it flush enough to fit right behind her door. Her room is still a work in progress since I put in the hardwood floors last year, but I think it is obvious her favorite colors are purple and pink. Don't you?
All you need to build this is 4 - 1x2x8 strips.
Cut 12 pieces of 1x2 - 24"
Cut 2 pieces of 1x2 - 36"
Add a piece of 1x2 to two other pieces in the shape of a Z. See picture below.
Build three of the Z shaped shelves and secure to the side pieces, equally spaced (about 12").
Then add the front brace to keep the books and DVDs in place.
