Rain Gutter Bookshelves

We're finally moved into our addition!!!   I'll be posting more pics over the next several weeks as we get things looking the way we want them, but I wanted to share our rain gutter bookshelves with you.   Yep . . . you heard that right.   Rain gutters.    I first heard about these several years ago and couldn't wait to use them.   Here's how they look!



Super easy, inexpensive and I think they look great.  

If you want in depth instructions on how to make them, here it is.


  1. how cool is that! just wait till the IKEA people scope out your blog - lol! this looks like something straight off their floor - excellent idea :)

  2. I'm getting my stuff this week, can't wait to try it.
    It looks great!
    I can see little bits and pieces of the house, it looks great! Can't wait til Sunday to see it in person!

  3. LOVE it! I have seen this idea as well...looks cute and very functional at the same time!!! I can't wait for the rest of "the tour" this week. BTW how are you feeling? Is that sicky feeling gone?

  4. Looks Awesome, Shannon!! Can't wait to see it all on Sunday!

  5. Shannon,
    I really love this idea! I have been looking at some shelves from Pottery Barn that look similar to this, but are super expensive. I might just have to try this one out! Thanks for the great tip.


Let me know what you're thinking!!
