How to Make Rain Gutter Bookshelves

Have you ever heard of rain gutter bookshelves for a nursery or playroom?

Essentially, you cut pieces of gutter to the desired length, use gutter end caps and include some support brackets intermittently. You can find detailed instructions on Must Love Babies and Raising Olives.

I have been planning to do this project for over a year, but per my list of things I am going to do in 2012, this is one of those projects I have resolved to let go.

So, many thanks to the talented Shannon Enos from Must Love Babies for sharing her project and pictures with! I totally admire you for making it happen.

If you want to see more pictures of rain gutter shelving and some other creative storage ideas, here are some ideas from Pinterest.

    Hey Heather –

    Thanks for stopping by my site the other day! I am definitely digging your site (hence the “link love”). And I really love this idea. Very cute! I’m actually looking for some interesting ways to incorporate book storage into my daughter’s room when I re-do it this Fall and this is definitely a contender.

    Have a great day!
