Since UNO and DOS share a trundle...hers tucked away under his...I needed to make sure NOT to obstruct the floor at all!
I had seen the Rain Gutter Idea at Raising Olives and it also included a tutorial. You MUST check out her post and see the pictures of her book shelves!
I went to Home Depot and bought 40 feet of Rain Gutters...a bit too ambitious, Don't cha think? The rain gutter is sold in 10' lengths a bit under $5/each. The end caps were $ 5.50/pair and the brackets were $ 1.90/each.
I cut mine into 5' lengths and they extend over both beds about 2" (I couldn't stand the thought of throwing away the scraps! ...although I did find an awesome idea to use them for but too late for now!)
They were super easy to put up!
UNO sang the Bob the Builder song
UNO and DOS putting books on the shelf!
I put their favorite books within arms reach and will rotate them as needed. The special books are placed on the higher shelf for mommy and daddy to reading time!
I am going to put one more below the last shelf so TRES can have her books within reach!
I do need to decorate the walls more...*sigh*...we are renting so painting is not an option! But I'm on the look out for something easy! Any ideas???
I will update later once the lower shelf is in place!
