Nursery Bookshelves

Thank you to everyone who is visiting from Pinterest!  I haven't posted to Crafty Kate in quite a while.  Please visit me over at

Happy belated Mothers Day to all you moms out there.  I hope you all had wonderful weekends.  My weekend was relaxing and slightly unproductive. 
But I was able to snap some pictures of the completed bookshelves that Hubby made.

I originally wanted some of those gutter shelves I’ve found on Pinterest.  I was a little obsessed with this idea.

Then I figured out how much it would cost to make them.  It’s the end pieces and corners that will get ya.  Luckily, Hubby is handy.  He volunteered to make something cute and fun out of wood…much cheaper…

They turned out super cute. 

Plus, I love the fun orange that he used.  It really helps to break up the green walls.
note to not put a green book against a green wall when taking pictures...

I would give you a breakdown of how he made them, but I was not a part of that process, and I’m pretty sure he was making it up as he went.

As soon as he hung them, I put all the baby books we have for the little one up

Now I need to go book shopping!
