Book Shelves are UP!

Thank goodness these are up! We cleared some much needed space on the desk and the boys have ALREADY been more drawn to the books! I put up the first shelf and added books to it to see how it was working and as I was putting up the second shelf, Rookie kept interrupting me asking for books to read. The only negative is that the type of shelves they are will not hold up to weight, so an unauthorized tug on the bottom shelf yesterday left me drilling new holes and rehanging that shelf. Hopefully, we can keep from that in the future.

which brand of bookshelves did you use?

My plan was to use the ones from Ikea, but I found these at Michaels. They are the scrapbooking shelves by Reflections (i think that's the name) I had a 40% off coupon, so they were much cheaper than the ones from Ikea. Not sure how the quality would compare though. It is not convenient to make a trip to Ikea.
