Planter turned bookshelf

So many projects going on right now in all three boys’ rooms. Carter is pretty settled, but he has nothing up on his walls yet. I came across a flower planter at a garage sale for $3 and decided I could turn it into two bookshelves. Even better, the color works well in Carter’s room – the other will be painted for the nursery.

We just cut the planter in half..

and added some hardware…

and that was that! Carter loves it because it is hung so long on the wall so that he can easily get to his books. I love how excited he gets about “improvements” to his room. His enthusiasm is as if he is getting a new toy every time I hang anything in his room.



  1. Love the planter! we are in remodel mode around here too. hopefully 4 more weeks or less if he would like to come early ;). i did find out that navy blue flat paint is just like chalkboard paint…with two boys that’s no bueno! Love the blog!
