High livin': And no, I'm not talking about the books.
Friends and neighbors O&K have book shelves made out of old beer crates. This is the ultimate modular system. And it looks nice.
O. picked up the crates for free from some brewery which went from one standard size to another one forty years ago.
Lately I saw some similar crates at a cute little antiques shop. They were priced really, really high. A decent months wage would buy you about twenty.
O. and I quickly calculated that by far the most valuable thing he and K. owns are their bookshelves.
So DIY pays.
