Library Wall

Reader Project

Are there many things more inspiring than reader projects inspired by other reader projects? (Possibly, but we can't think of any off the top of our heads.) Taking her cue from the many book display shelves featured on Ohdeedoh, Anna commissioned her husband and father-in-law to design and build this stunning library wall.

Anna, who runs The Princess and the Frog Blog, wrote in to give us the particulars about this amazing project:

The overall dimensions of the wall are 8' x 8'. Three separate 8-foot-long boxes were constructed using 3/4" poplar plywood with tempered hardboard backs. The boxes were stacked and attached to each other and the top box was anchored to the wall. Trim is 1"x2" and 1"x3" poplar.

We love it and use it ALL the time! As a former teacher, I have tons of children's books and I don't know why I hadn't thought to do this before.

Thanks so much for sharing, Anna!
