Mama Nibbles: Books and DIY Bookshelves + A Fairy Hobmother Visit

Books and DIY Bookshelves + A Fairy Hobmother Visit


     Recently I've been wanting to build some shelves for my daughter's room.  She has loads of books and I mean loads!  Several years ago a local thrift store was moving and wanted to get rid of their book inventory fast.  They had all books at .25 cents each.  I remember going in and loading a shopping cart up to the top with books.  There were tons of kids books that I knew my child and future children would enjoy.  I had been keeping a big stack down in my basement.  It's time they had a nice home.  We now have three children who love to read, it's time!
     I had been wanting to order a few tools to help with my project, a Kreg Jig being one of them.  It just so happens that I got a visit from the Fairy Hobmother from Appliances Online and he has sprinkled my blog with happiness by giving me an Amazon gift card in exchange for a mention.  This sounded like fun to me and who doesn't love a gift.  I accepted his gift right away and can't wait to pick out more books for my budding readers to enjoy.
     I'm not the most handy of people but I do enjoy a good challenge.  I thought that maybe using some old apple crates would make some easy DIY shelves.  I've been scouring the web in search of the perfect idea to use them in.  I found some really great ideas on Pinterest and so I thought I'd share a few that I found.  I can get apple crates for $3 each locally so this is a low cost project that will fit neatly into my small budget.
