I had the hubs cut down a pallet into two of these pockets and add the bottom. Cost: Free!! My favorite word. This is what they looked like...
Then I added 3 coats of paint. That pallet wood sucked up the paint like crazy... I used Clark and Kensington paint in the color Spicy Paprika. Cost: Free again. It was left over from another project. Score again for me!
After the paint was dry I added hanging hardware to the back.
And they were ready for hanging!
We hung them up in his room at the end of his bed.
AH-MAZING! All of his books fit into these bookcases. They are easily accessible for him. And they take up absolutely no floor space in his teeny tiny room.
And the best part: They cost me NOTHING to make! As in FREE!
B loves his new bookcases. They give an amazing pop of color in his room and allow the room to function much better.
I think these might be my favorite DIY project to date.
