  • Hana

  • Ann Marie @ Twice Lovely

    Checked it out…LOVED it! (as usual) Great job! I'm a huge fan of the free as well.

  • Alison @ Stretch My Check

    Oh Beckie I have been searching high and low for a way to make one of those for my son's room, and BAM! There you are! Beckie to the (roadkill) rescue! Now I shall frolick over to CL where I will begin my search anew. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • SugarandSpice

    I really like this one! I love books, so anything to make them accessible and cute…I am all for!

  • Jana

    It's perfect! You are so gifted!

  • Green Willow Pond

    What a great idea! Not only do you get book storage, but a nice display shelf too. It turned out really cute.

  • Leanne

    Oh my gosh. This is turned out so beautiful. I love it in white. I'm hosting We're Organized Wednesday and would love for you to join if you get the chance. Hope to see you there.

  • Polly

    Wow! Great idea!

  • Carmel

    I need one of these… will definitely be keeping my eye out for a hutch on the curb or at a yard sale! : )

  • Ginger

    That turned out fantastic! What a change!

  • Jeralee

    I love this! I have always admired that book shelf from PB, but it is WAAAAAAAAAAAY too expensive. I love what you did with the hutch and now you have given me some more inspiration.

    and it was FREE! You go girl!

    wow! brilliant! great vision. I love the way you repurposed this piece.

  • Trista

    Wow, how amazing is that. I also loved the first roadkill rescue. I am thinking I need to meet some people who want to give me free furniture. lol!

    Great blog, you are very inspiring.

  • Manda

    Shut up! That is AWESOME! (I just came across your blog from a friend of a friends…)
    I have always wanted on of those Pottery Barn book shelves. You SO inspire me!

  • Kathy@DandelionsandDustBunnies

    So is it difficult to get the books in and out from behind the dowel rods? You're so clever to flip it upside down. Love it.

  • Jenn @ WestSacHoney

    That looks great!

  • Katie @ On the Banks of Squaw Creek

    cute, cute, cute! What a great idea!

  • Danielle Daws

    This is FABULOUS!!

  • Adrienne

    loving this idea!!!

  • Jenn Erickson

    Another fabulous rescue! Wonder how many people, with less vision and no creative spirit passed that diamond in the rough right by.

  • Oonafey

    Never, never would have seen that coming (again.)!

  • fawndear

    It would be perfect in a child's reading nook. Perfect color, Wonderful Up-cycle Idea – Love it!

  • Lynn from For Love or Funny

    By the way, I loved your "I'm not better than you" post. Thank you! :)

  • Centsational Girl

    You just rock my world when you create these inexpensive yet brilliant solutions. So fabulous my dear. BTW, I can't believe I didn't have you on my blogroll. I've been reading you via Reader for ages and glanced over to see you weren't there. Corrected that today !

  • shelly @ the familyblt

    loeverly! I likey it beaucoup!

  • Lori @ Nitty Gritty Pretty

    I was looking through my recent Pottery Barn Kids catalog last night and saw this shelf. I immediately thought to myself, "I like Beckie's version much better." :)

    FYI, your masthead doesn't have a link in it to go "HOME" so a reader has to scroll to the end of the page to get to your most current (HOME) page.

  • Virginia

    Brilliant! Love it!

  • Justine

    NICE! I can't believe this is was roadkill! I don't see anything wrong with the shelf!


  • Amy

    Wow so cute! Love it!

  • billiemonster

    Saw you over at UCreate! I am in love with this project! You have quite the imagination indeed! I'm a follower now. :D

  • mylittlegems

    I have an identical shelf sitting in my garage- so I think I just have to do the same thing. Very cute.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Shanty 2 Chic
