Our most recent project was a set of bookshelves for her wall. I love that it adds a little bit of decoration to the room and I love that it's so easy for both my girls to put away the books. No more piles of books laying around on the floor.
I had some leftover wood from an old project so the only thing I had to buy was a countersink drill bit.
I used a 1x6 for the back piece against the wall, a 1x4 for the bottom and a 1x3 for the front piece. I put all five shelves together in one afternoon. The priming and painting took the longest with all the drying time. Once they were done, I hung them by drilling right into the wall studs. It was such an easy project.
Most days I find Madison sitting in front of her shelves reading a book, then rearranging the shelves so they look pretty.
