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 TheMommyhood.com! I totally admire you for making it happen.
