nursery details: book wall

More diy details from my baby girl's bedroom!

The "book wall" idea is no longer very new or unique, thanks to Pinterest, but from the first time I saw the idea, I knew I loved it and wanted to use it someday. Luckily my husband jumped right on board and he helped me a lot with this little project (hanging things is a 2-person job at our house!).

This project was very straightforward... we bought picture ledges from IKEA (hint: these are in the picture frame section of the store, NOT the shelving section where I kept looking), hung them one above the other on an empty wall, and then filled them up with our little one's growing book collection. I see lots and lots more books in our future, so of course we will need a bookcase as well. But this is a fun, colorful look - visible storage as we would call it in the museum world. A way to decorate with the prettiest and most special books. And seeing the books all lined up makes it easier to choose what to read!

  1. I love this book wall! We have the same ledges in our house for picture frames.

  2. Very clever idea! Nurseries are the most fun rooms to decorate. -- Jan
