Front Facing Picture Book Shelves

Finally, my new picture book shelves are finished and I Love them.  Thanks so much for the how to from Helping Little Hands that was the inspiration and showed us exactly what to do.  Easy enough I was able to print out the directions and tell my husband I want these and to my delight he said OK.  A shopping trip to Home Depot and the task began for the perfect shelves.

C's little book corner. Love them!
My daughter wants some for her room now!
