What would you do with a rain gutter?!

Obviosuly, you would want to make a BOOKSHELF with it!

A LONG time ago I was on the hunt for bookshelves, that would be practical enough for my budget, and durable enough for my kids. After days of searching, and not really finding anything I liked, I somehow stumbled upon this genius project at Mama Notes! Go over and check it out, she gives you all the details of how to get yours done!
vinyl rain gutter is the material of choice! Say WHAT?! Yes, When I went to Lowes and told them my plans they thought I was CRRRRAZY! I reassured them that I wasn't...they still stared.
Annnyway, it cost me about $15 to do 3 shelves! If I do just one long one, it would be around $10! It costs about $7 for a long vinyl raingutter and then $2 each for the end closure thingys!
This is how mine turned out!
I plan on having 2 more above that one, I am just waiting for my hubby to get done hunting to cut the other 2 out! Maybe I don't know how to use a hack saw, but WHOA did I find that to be extremely vigorus! Okay, so maybe I am just a wimp! Anyway, I know my hunky hub will whip the other 2 out like butter, so I'd rather wait for him!
My daughter has a little nook in her room, that's where I put the shelves, and I plan on making a couple chairs or bean bags to go under them! She is excited because she can reach them without having to get a stool!
I have to go get another gutter for my son, he wants one in his room for all of his books, so stay tuned for that. I plan on doing something a little different with his gutter!

Don't forget to ENTER in the GIVEAWAY!!
Have a Happy Wednesday!
