Book Storage using Picture Ledges

My girls love books and I am slowly running out of space to store them all.  Since our recent purchase of a whole slew of books from a garage sale, I had to come up with a solution.

I decided to use Ikea’s RIBBA picture ledges for a few different reasons:

  1. The open storage is ideal for books
  2. These seem to be all the rage on Pinterest
  3. I already had the shelves left over from another project

Here was the space before:

And here is the space now with the shelves (and 2 super cute kid-sized rocking chairs which E and L got  for Christmas):

I’ve been wanting to do this project for a while so I’m glad I finally got around to it!
