Pinterest Project #7: The Zoo

img_0631
I had been looking for a fun way to store and display Adam’s “friends” when I saw this on pinterest:


I used this old, narrow bookshelf behind Adam’s door to make a zoo for all of his animals.

(The wood splintered on the bottom side of the shelves…not really sure how to avoid that.  Anyone know?  Also, I used a 1/2 inch drill bit and 1/2 in dowels, and then used my dustbuster as a makeshift mallet to hammer the dowels in.  I would DEFINITELY make a larger hole next time as these were a really tight fit.  The cage “bars” were 5 inches apart, except for the middle two, which were 4.  This distance seems to work pretty well so far.)

We had a great time gathering the friends from around Adam’s room and reminiscing about each one as he found a “cage” for each of them.img_0634
Now all we need is a little “Zoo” sign (so it doesn’t look like we put his Cabbage Patch Kid in jail.)
