Making a Display Bookshelf for The Boy
The Boy already had a rail bookshelf on the wall above his bed for his Tintin collection, but when we changed his bed over to bunk-beds (for all the sleepovers he has) I decided to make a second rail bookshelf to put on the wall along the top bunk too. I like these bookshelves, as you can display collections of oversize books, and it’s easy for children to see which book is which.
I made these bookshelves quite easily using two strips of wood, one a bit narrower and thicker than the other. I glued them together with wood glue and then used little panel pins hammered in along regular intervals as well. I then attached the shelf to the wall using little brackets. It was very easy to contsruct. I haven’t painted the newest addition as I quite like the wood and The Boy’s room needs painting anyway so I might just paint it all in one go one day…
