A Book Rack for the Nursery

We have a few projects in the works, but as always things are taking longer than expected.  But we did get a tiny project completed this weekend, it took us a whole 5 minutes to finish.  I love those quick and easy projects with immediate results!

When I saw my aunt a few weeks ago for my grandma's birthday she gave me a metal wire rack.  I wasn't sure what to do with it but I liked the design of it and figured I could find a place for it.  Yesterday morning before getting out of bed I stared at the rack leaning against the wall in our room and thought it would work perfect in the baby's room to hold some books.  I had been picking up books at thrift stores and found a few more today, hopefully our baby is an avid reader!

 So here's a picture of the wall where I thought it would work.  I also put some stuffed animals in a basket on the nightstand I painted here.

 I recruited Brian to help me with the hanging.  We used a level to position the rack.  Then Brian drilled pilot holes and attached the rack to the wall with extra long screws to hold the rack tightly in place.

And here we have the after:

And a closer view:

I figure we can rotate the books we have in the rack as we read them and as our baby's tastes changes.  And I also have a whole collection of my own Nancy Drew books that I can now pass on to my daughter.  Yep, it's a girl!
