Rain Gutter Bookshelves

Who knew rain gutters could be so useful inside the house? We noticed a neat post on using them to wrangle computer wires on Unplugged a few weeks ago, and now this: using them to make really cool bookshelves on the wall.

Standard white rain gutters create this library effect. The photos come from mom Nicole's Flickr stream. If it looks a little school-like to you, it's because this "playroom" is also used as a school room. The children are home schooled. What a bright, and inspiring space.

Anyone else use rain gutters for a project recently?
