Rain Gutter Bookshelves

We have been slowly turning Alex's room from a nursery into a big boy's room. He loves Toy Story so we have been going with that theme. We replaced his baby turtle border with a Toy Story border. I am currently painting a Toy Story mural on one wall, I'll post more on that project later.

Anyway, our latest project was some vinyl rain gutter bookshelves. They were really inexpensive (about $15) and look great. They hold a fair amount of books, these two shelves are 3 and half feet long and hold about 15 books each. It all depends on the thickness of the books too. I love that Alex can see the covers of all his books and tell us which one he's like to read. I found a great tutorial here on how to install them.
