Ten Dollar Ledges for Books

What a quick easy project!!

I bought 8 ft long boards....and was able to make a 3 ft shelf and a 5ft shelf with each set. (The 5 foot shelves are going in my bedroom for photos...I'll be finishing those up this week!)

I hung these (3 foot) book shelves behind my daughter's bedroom door....so I adjusted the 1x4's to 1x2's....that way the door can open all the way and not bump in to them. A perfect fit for usually wasted space!

I staggered the shelves in my daughters room, so some taller books could stand up on the sides. She LOVES them!!

~Don't mind all the other chaos in the photos....that is all my daughter's "projects". She's a doer- like her Mama! =)

Estimated Cost
About $3 per shelf (since I used the remaining wood on other projects)
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Finish Used
I didn't even stain/paint these. They look adorable just bare wood!
