Picture books don’t fit on regular bookshelves. We all know that, right?
So I had to come up with a way to store them so that Adam can:
a) look through them independently
b) put them away independently
And this is what I came up with! It has moved around the living room, and I don’t think it looks great where it is now, but it serves its purpose!
The bottom crate came from a garage sale for $8 years ago.
The top crate was from my great grandparents’ house. I think the colors and “rope” are super cute, so it may go to Adam’s room eventually.
Speaking of Adam’s room, here are a couple of pictures. This is a shelf on his changing table, which holds the books we choose from every night. We read 3 – 7 books every night, often the same ones over and over and over until I hide them. :) There are more books on top of the changing table, and the other shelves, but I was too lazy to straighten them all up.
And since I’m linking this up to Funky Junk Interiors Saturday Night Special Old Crate Theme Party, here’s one more. I got this at JB Knacker for $14 a few months ago. (If you are ever in central Iowa, and you like junk, you HAVE to stop there!) It’s just hanging out on my childhood dresser for now because I’m not really sure what to put in it. Ah well, some things are cute just by themselves, right?
If I hadn’t quickly kicked all the toys out of the way to take these pictures, I’d show you the rest of the room…another day, perhaps.
