Roadkill Rescue Book Rack

I want to show you my new favorite addition to Kayla’s room. I got this free hutch from a friend…thanks Carrie!

It was an Ethan Allen hutch that no longer fit in with her decor.   Well my inspiration was a $119 Catalina Book Rack from Pottery Barn Kids.

I started by unscrewing the little feet it had on the bottom…

I then flipped it the whole hutch upside down and cut a board for the top to act as a shelf.

To cover up the rough edge I cut some molding to fit and filled the holes with wood filler.

I measured three descending holes and using a 1/2” drill bit and my electric drill I made three holes making sure to not drill through the other side.

I cut 1/2” dowel rods to size and bent them a little to fit them into the holes I drilled.   I added books to make sure they all fit…so far, so good!

A little primer, a little paint and she was ready to be hung in my baby girl’s room.

I feel like it was the missing piece in her room.   Is it awful that I am already planning her big girl room?
