Scrap-Wood Book Ledges10:12:00 PM
I love repurposing items, making useful things out of materials that others would deem trash . . . Well that's what I did when I decided to build these scrap wood book ledges for my daughter's room.
It all started with this bin of overflowing books:
This empty corner:
And this pile of scrap wood:
I know there is nothing original about this project, but I just thought I’d share the only thing that I accomplished this weekend, lol.
I pre-drilled three holes and screwed the boards together.
I then predrilled 3 holes to the front of the shelves, added some wood glue and screwed the smallest of the boards to the the front to keep the books from falling off of the ledge.
I let Nia choose the colors, Watermelon and Blue Ocean Breeze Krylon spray-paint.
These shelves quickly solved our book storage dilemma. Nia really likes them, she feels like she has her own personal library. Cayden loves them too, in fact, I think I’ll have to make a trio of ledges for his room too!
The hardest part about doing this project was hanging the shelves straight! I’ll correct that soon . . .
Thanks for visiting!
