I just finished this wall-mount bookrack, and it’s too pretty not to show you! It’s similar to my DIY Pottery Barn Kids Madison bookrack, so click on over to that tutorial after you’ve read about the easy modifications to make this version!
This wall-mount bookrack is 28 inches high and 36 inches wide. I thought the knobs along the bottom were a fun touch to be able to hang cute baby/kid things. Following the same process as the PBK Madison Bookrack, I assembled the shelves. These consist of a support piece in the back, a bottom piece, and a curved front piece. I used a wider piece of wood on the back of the bottom shelf so it would extend down far enough to attach the knobs. Then I cut the curves on the vertical side pieces and attached the shelves to them. Last I added the little front pieces above the shelves to keep books from falling forward. The bookrack mounts to the wall by screwing straight through the shelf back pieces, right into studs in the wall.
I built this bookrack for a client who is expecting her second baby, and she was so happy with the way it turned out! I kind of want to build one for my daughter’s room now, too! She has a growing collection of books in there and they currently live in a cardboard box. Not even a basket, it’s an unused flat-rate box, and I never even cut the flaps off the top so they really annoy me. That was embarrassing to admit, but it’s sadly true.
Anyway, stay tuned, there’s more coming soon! I have a couple posts on the backburner that I plan to write soon, and a couple more projects in the works as we speak! Thanks for reading 🙂
