  2. 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!

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

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

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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!

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

    Great blog, you are very inspiring.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

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

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

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

  15. 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 !

  16. 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." 🙂

  17. 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.

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

  19. 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!

  20. Loved your projects… Especially the subway art!! Next time add a button so we can feature it!! Way to go!!
