Gutter bookcases

Paula of Hearty Works commented on our shared interests. She was right--she has a photo of the same gutter bookcase project I want to do for Andrew's room. In fact, the gutters are lying in the garage as I type! I've seen these done in unattractive ways, but Paula's photo is an ideal version to copy. Thanks!

I love it! It has the potential to look like a bookstore display :-)

I've been dying to do this in our playroom forever now. I think this picture may help me convince hubby:)

Isn't that the CUTEST picture?! :) I cannot remember where I found it (I need to be better organized). Thanks for the trackback! And if I haven't said it enough already, I LOVE YOUR BLOG! :)

LOVE that! I've been searching for some bookshelves for my son's bedroom, but this would be so much more fun and practical! Thanks for sharing.

very cool! i have been reading your blog for some time and really enjoy it...you always inspire!

could you explain how these bookshelves work? how they attach to the wall, etc? are you using old gutters? i ask because we are about to replace ours and i could use the old ones in my playroom! any help would be greatly appreciated!

Jim Trelease's website has a page about gutter bookcases, as well. You can do a search for his website by his name or the "Read Aloud Handbook."
