DIY Wall Mounted Kids Bookshelf
I'm currently in the process of renovating our kid's small playroom. Last week I finished this EPIC IKEA hack using two TROFAST storage units. And this week we'll be tackling the book situation. Basically, we'll be building a DIY book display.
Cut an archMake a jig to draw an arch. (Find more details on the blog)
Then I took a jigsaw and cut the half arch. Try to go slow with the jigsaw to make sure it's staying on track.

AssemblyTo assemble this adorable bookcase you'll need clamps, screws, and wood glue. I measured where the shelves will go, and drilled 4 holes throughout. Then I added wood glue to the shelves and clamped it to the arched plywood back. After that, I flipped the whole thing over and drove screws through the previously predrilled holes. Easy peasy!

very pretty and cool. Nice spot for it to. Right next to a window. For me I would either pick a ocean blue, or a sunrise or sunset coral shade withe the bright white shelves or dark wood, with a very cozy lounge chair or chase and a little table and lamp to match every thing for my drink and snack and settle right in. Lol you made a very nice and lovely spot for reading.
