My sweet Ava Kate has a small room. She has enough room for her bed, dresser and a small table. I love her room but it is missing one thing … a bookshelf. Ava is completely book obsessed. She is constantly loading books into a bag and bringing them into her room. I have been wanting to add a book shelf to her room but there isn’t enough space … until I saw these linear bookshelves over at Living With Punks. Perfect, easy to make and the price is right! Not to mention, my husband finally had a reason to buy a nail gun.

These are very easy to make. The most time consuming part of the project is painting … and then waiting for the paint to dry. I am impatient so multiple coats of anything is hard for me. I followed all of the directions and even did the clear coat. I know … impressive! It was totally worth it. They are perfect.
Ava’s face was so sweet when I showed her the completed shelves … all loaded up with her favorite books. I finished while she was at school. I made her close her eyes when she walked into her room. She squealed and then promptly began gazing at all of the books. She shut her door and didn’t come out for an hour.
Notice the happy dance going on …
I think she liked it! Her favorite section is definitely the Olivia section…
My attempt to get a picture of her in front of her new bookshelves proved to be a bit tricky!
My favorite part is the very top shelf and the sweet print by Mandipidy that says, “I love you a Bushel and a Peck”. We sing that song at bedtime, sometimes even making up our own verses.
She is one happy little bookworm!
