Lovely Little Shelf

Bookish Thoughts: Upcycled Shelves

I absolutely love the idea of re-using something that is headed for a junk heap somewhere.

Here are a few little ideas I’ve been compiling for our next bookshelf adventure.

This is probably one of my favorite things ever.  I love how it somehow manages to look modern and vintage all at once and I can only imagine Isaac’s excited squeals at pushing this around and grabbing books off of it.  So cool.

These next two are awesome because they are that forward-facing style of bookshelf that I love, especially for kids books.  They are both made out of shipping pallets. They are both pretty incredible.

Pretty fun, right?  Do you have any up-cycling you want to do soon?  Would you use any of these in your house or does it feel too grungy to you?

    I love all three. The first one reminds me a bit of a library cart. And I’m totally loving the forward facing shelves, I’ve been drooling over them on pinterest. I would totally put those in my house if I had room.
