Book Storage Inspiration


Posted by Rebecca, February 5th, 2013

Easton loves books. I know, he’s only 8 months old, but he will sit with a book and ever so carefully turn the pages and analyze the pictures.


Over the weekend I was hanging out in the playroom with Easton (where I now live), and I realized that the Expedit we have in there isn’t great for his books.

He has to reach in too deep…


In order to chuck all of his books on the floor…


So I got to thinking that maybe we should have a dedicated book area. I knew I had seen so many children’s books displayed adorably on Pinterest, so why not investigate a little, huh?

Here are some options I came across:

playroom bookcase 1

(via Domestic Simplicity)

Inexpensive Ikea spice racks. Could be painted fun colors, plus they’re only $4 each!

Playroom bookcase 2

(via Apartment Therapy)

Fabric book slings, so many fun possibilities.

Playroom bookcase 3

(via Sunshine on the Inside)

Rain gutters for bookshelves? So creative.

playroom bookcase 4

(via Brooklyn Limestone)

Ikea Ribba picture ledges.

And perhaps my favorite, the DIYed numbered ones.

playroom bookcase 5

(via The Sweet Survival)

I was thinking of maybe building our own and adding a little ombre effect? Maybe 3 shelves in varying shades of yellow… or green… or orange! Maybe numbered? Hmmm…
