Halfway through the work week. Actually, we are halfway through our last week of school here in the 'ole world of education. I know, I hear moans and groans coming from every jealous direction, and I don't blame you. Look at it this way though- say hello to nice, easy drives to work for 3 months! This summer, however, I will be spending most of my well-deserved pregnant time on the couch or looking like a beached whale somewhere. There couldn't be anything worse than being big and pregnant... at work... in the dead of a Southern summer. God bless you all that have had to endure THAT nightmare!!
Anyways, I just went completely off course... let's get back on track now, shall we?!
We have a narrow wall in between the nursery doorway and closet door, that is only about 34" wide. I wanted to use that space to house all of Rilynn's children's books (my mom is a media specialist so seester and I grew up loving books- I am determined for my daughter to do the same!), but I also wanted something that wouldn't take up too much visual space since not only is the wall tiny, but the entire room is basically a cracker jack box. I was giddy when I stumbled upon Kirsten Krason's post on 6th Street Design School about these amazeballs shelves from Clear Solutions. Cheap and exactly what I was looking for.
I purchased 5 of them for hubs to run the length of the wall.
Here is how the shelves look in Kirsten's son's room. Just precious!
I love how the books seem to be floating on the wall.

I bought 5 shelves, and after some deliberation, I think I am going to add the 5th one to the bottom of the rows seen here. I initially thought 4 would be plenty, but not only do I have more books that need a home, but these things are so stinkin cute, I can't get enough of them!
