Sibling's Reading Wall

kids bedroom reading wall

A kids bedroom is not the cleanest places but we are always finding solutions to make life a tad bit easier...right? I know I am for my siblings. I wanted to do a reading wall for my siblings for a while now but tackled a few other problem parts of the bedroom before doing so like giving the top bunk a makeover and creating a bunk bed custom closet. Now was the time to give my siblings a reading wall. My goal for this wall was one... have a spot for their books that they can reach but my son can't reach and two... for it to look simple, cute and organized. The wall letters I made last week will help with the cute part of my goal.

What do I need... what do I need? For starters I need a BEKVAM spice rack. I have seen all the fun things you can do with this product (like my tv stand...hint...hint) and had to join in with using it for a book shelve. 

If you were wondering why I had a screw driver in my last photo its because I completely forgot that IKEA comes with tools already. I must have been tired lol.

Here is all the pieces in the package. I did the first part already.

After finishing the spice racks, it was time to put nails into the wall to add them up along with the reading wall letters I have created with gift paper then it was all finished. A simple, easy to do reading wall. 

It may be a question on why I decided to keep the spice racks simple design might be running through your mind. No I didn't do anything different to the spice racks because it matched the bunk bed. I focused my pop of colour and creativity towards the wall letters and I am so glad that I did.

Blue... Poka dots = CUTE!

My siblings loves reading good books and I am glad that they have a place to store their books. Now I just have to go through their many many books to see which ones need to be donated, kept and given to my son. However that will be for another day.
