Another Great DIY Book Display

Another Great DIY Book Display

Could it be that front-facing book displays are vying with play kitchens for DIY popularity here at Ohdeedoh? We're starting to think so. Ohdeedoh reader Julie sent us these photos of the beautiful bookcase she built for her children. Love that red paint!

Julie, who runs the Etsy shop Inkies and Smushies, wrote to tell us about this project:

Oh, I have been so inspired by all of the front facing bookshelves that I decided I just *had* to have one for my playroom. Our old bookshelf was cluttered and non-functional as far as the kids being able to find a book that they wanted. A trip to Home Depot scored me some raw lumber (cut to size for a nominal charge), some yummy red paint to match the opposite wall, not shown. (The birdies are courtesy of Elephannie.) Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Thank you, Julie!
