  3. Alison @ Stretch My Check says:

    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!

  4. SugarandSpice says:

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

  5. It's perfect! You are so gifted!

  6. Green Willow Pond says:

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

  7. 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.

  8. Wow! Great idea!

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

  10. That turned out fantastic! What a change!

  11. 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!

  12. says:

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. Kathy@DandelionsandDustBunnies says:

    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.

  16. Jenn @ WestSacHoney says:

    That looks great!

  17. Katie @ On the Banks of Squaw Creek says:

    cute, cute, cute! What a great idea!

  18. Danielle Daws says:

    This is FABULOUS!!

  19. loving this idea!!!

  20. Jenn Erickson says:

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

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

  22. fawndear says:

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

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

  24. Centsational Girl says:

    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 !

    loeverly! I likey it beaucoup!

  26. Lori @ Nitty Gritty Pretty says:

    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.

  28. Virginia says:

    Brilliant! Love it!

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


  30. Wow so cute! Love it!

    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!
