Spice rack book shelves {DIY}

There’s been quite a few posts about front facing book shelves.  Little Man’s big boy bedroom makeover (click these links to see phase 1 and phase 2) needed a little less clutter, and yet his books needed to be accessible by him (he’s 2). If you’ve ever read this blog before you know that cheap, trendy and figuring out how to “do-it-myself” is how I roll.

I was intrigued by the $3.99 IKEA spice racks made bookshelves…

…but being that the nearest IKEA is 4 hours away and these are not available for order, I needed to come up with a plan B.

So I showed the husband a picture, gave him some dimensions and about 4 hours later we were painting them red. He made 3 total, one for above the bed and 2 for the corner nook.

The husband has learned that I don’t throw scraps away.  (Yes, I just admitted to dumpster diving).  It proved to be handy as much of this was “scrap” wood that was left over from a previous project, the paint was left over from our “red room.”  So our total budget $0.00. On to some wall art and curtains and you might see a full bedroom reveal before the end of the year 😉
