D.I.Y book shelf idea

source: Pinterest

Ok folks, some things are too good to not share... so here's a sweet Do It Yourself project that I am chomping at the bit to do.. myself!  Thanks to the inspiration gallery of Pinterest I was able to marry two looks I love into one idea... now to go do it. (no, not tonight... it's late, and raining...ick).

So what has me smitten?  Apart from that sweet boy in half a lion costume.. it's the sweet bookshelves that beautifully display so many fun covers!  I guess the above are actually 'spice racks' from IKEA.  That's cool enough...  but having come across this next picture.. I know exactly where I want to grab my shelves - for cheap... and free is cheap!

That's right... grab some beat up skids and chop.saw.nail.sand them into a cool up-cycled project for your kids (big kids) room!
Sweet dreams,
Mel :o)
