I got this cute idea from my mentor teacher when I student taught third grade several years back. I loved it, and decided to do the same thing in my son's room.
For materials, you will need 6 washers and 6 screws.
You also need 6 end caps and rain gutters (can purchase at any Home Depot or Lowes).
When you purchase your rain gutters, they only come in large pieces. You will need to cut them using a hacksaw or backsaw to your desired length. Mine are 34 inches long.
Decide generally where you want to put your first shelf. You will need a studfinder to find a good place to put your screw.
Once you find your stud, mark it and screw in one side of your rain gutter to the wall. Use a level to make sure it's straight and fasten the other side to the wall. Repeat the process for the other shelves and add end caps to each side.
Such a cheap and easy way to display your books!
