There are certain things about school that make us all nostalgic. The smell of the library, industrial bathrooms and the way chalk floats in the air when an eraser is slapped against the board.
Click through the jump for a few suggestions on how to use these Book Trucks in your own home without being reminded of the smell of meatloaf in the morning.
This Smith System Gorilla Book Truck
is currently selling for
under $15.00 (sorry for the initial pricing error - the seller is correcting their website as well - we just spoke to them)
$353. and has a realm of possibilities in the home.
Can you picture them in a children's bedroom holding the obvious books, shoes, toys or art supplies?
What about in the kitchen holding your cookbooks and stray pots and pans?
Or how about the laundry room? A room that needs a little bit of an industrial feel to it, but could usually use a little pizazz.
With the addition of a few small potted plants an outdoor space would be easily accented by one.
They could divide rooms or be media storage, the possibilities are almost endless.
Best of all, they come in 13 different colors, so if purple isn't your idea of a good time, no worries they have you covered.
They also carry larger sizes if you are looking for something with slanting shelves or more shelves. Either way you go it's a good deal.
