I've been looking for a little tiny bookshelf
for my little lady's birthday.
I don't need something permanent yet,
just something for her little board books
temporarily until she gets a little taller.
I want to eventually install
some nice ones on the wall.
I couldn't find one small enough and
realized finally that I would have to
make do with something else.
I found a small bathroom shelf at
the Salvation Army for $2.
I wiped it down and disinfected it
before spray painting it glossy white.
Next I cut a piece of fabric to fit the
dimensions of the back of the shelf.
I used spray adhesive to attach it.
Be sure to flatten it down on all sides and
ends with a credit card or something.
The final step was gluing some ribbon onto
the edge of the top shelf. I ripped it off thinking
I was going to replace all of the edging but
realized as soon as I did that it was going to
be more work than I wanted to do.
Because of this I had to cover it
with something else.
I used some ribbon I had on hand.
I am pleased with the final result.
It will do for now,
especially taking into consideration
that it only cost $2.
I had all the other supplies on hand.
Knowing my little gal,
this will be a great form of entertainment
for her. She'll rip the books out,
look at them, chew on them and
then try to stack them back on it.
