I love this idea! I know that I saw it on someones blog, but can't remember who's. So, if you know, please tell me so that I can credit them properly.
I hae this short wall between the door to my crafty room and the door to the closet/cold storage area. It is only 22" wide, but I have been wanting to use it for some kind of supply storage. I finally found the perfect idea. The first pic shows the wall, the second shows the transformation.
I cut the raingutter in 18" lengths, added the end caps and attached it to the wall. I was able to screw one side into the stud, but the other side, I had to use an anchor. Total cost for this project: $9.41!! And, I love the results. I am wanting to do this in the kids TV room with all of their books.
**Thanks Keri for letting me know that this project is on Leah Killians blog: http://lifeaslou.blogsome.com/2010/02/11/rain-gutter-bookshelves/
