I didn’t have any place to arrange my children’s books, and I certainly didn’t want to spend
Our DIY books shelvesa lot of money to store them. While surfing the web one day, I came across this idea and the day came to make it! In that post they painted the shelves white, we on the other hand thought to make them cheerful and colourful!
What did we do?
First of all we bought some inexpensive selves used for storing spice containers. We used the ones from IKEA, which cost 3.49 € each here in Greece. I am sure there are other selves suited for this as well, but those were used also in the original article I got the idea from, so I used them, too.
Next, we bought some plastic colours – they were cheaper than the made for wood ones. We went for the colours green, yellow and red and our super-dad painted them.
After they were complete dry, our dad put them together. Although first we wanted to make one shelf green, one yellow and one red, our dad assembled it using different colors – brilliant!
Then he got his drill and put them up on the wall. Come to think of it, all the hard work was done by my hubby. Thank you so much for that!!!
And here is the result! Aren’t they great?
The kids loved them, they immediately wanted to start reading the books!!!
