You know we can't resist a good-looking and inexpensive way to store books. Forward-facing is the way to go when displaying books for little ones, especially pre-readers. For those of you who missed it the first time, there is a simple and affordable way to get these little bookshelves for your very own.
Get thee to IKEA and go to the kitchen area. That's right, Louise of Table Tonic created this mini library using the IKEA Bekvam spice racks. She was inspired by Lillian of Domestic Simplicity. And when we say inexpensive, we really mean it. Each shelf is just $3.99. We love the reading area with the wall of shelves and leather poufs. To see whether Louise is keeping the shelves their natural wood color or painting them, check out her blog Table Tonic.
