I have seen Rain Gutter bookshelves on a couple of websites. I thought that they were an amazing idea from the start...we have had issues with the boys' books for WAY too long!!! HERE is a tutorial. We just did it without the tutorial & I think that they turned out GREAT!! I am so happy!!! Now I can use the top of their dresser for other things...LIKE THIS.... Yes..my husband talked me into dwarf hamsters...THREE of them. They are so stinkin cute & the boys ♥ them.
