What a cute little shelf! This would look great in a nursery or child's room. It's the perfect way to display one's favorite books.

Love it! This is such an awesome craft. I might have to make this for our library at home.

This is so creative! I love the vintage look this gives off, and you can use your favorite or meaningful books for even more of a personal touch.
