Can you believe that they are made out of rain gutters? I saw the picture above and knew this was something I want to incorporate in our new homeschool room. I know they will not hold a lot of books, but I think it is a great way to display their favorites or ones they are currently reading.
Raising Olives gives a great tutorial on how to make these cool shelves.

I love her philosophy she says "that they encourage children to read more because they can see the fronts of the books and are intrigued, rather than just seeing the edge of the book and not being able to tell what it is about." I can see so many benefits having some of our many books displayed in this manner - I think clean up may be easier too!
