The problem with my daughter reading at night was I couldn't have her climbing in and out of bed to get books all night especially in the dark So instead of being happy with just one or two, she would always request to have a huge pile in bed with her. She would then fall asleep in the middle of reading one. I always ended up having to remove them after she fell asleep but when she was on top of them it was really hard to do. Sleeping on books also couldn't be comfortable for her, I'm sure. In my search for a solution, I stumbled across this pin.
It seemed like the perfect answer to my problem! Only 3.99 for each rack plus a little paint I already had on hand brought my total up to around 8 dollars!
I got out my paints and started decorating. I painted them white with pink and green accents to match her room. I'm not the best artist in the world but they looked cute with little butterflies and flowers on them. I then had my awesome husband hang them for me. (The spice racks don't come with the hardware to mount them).
They were a perfect solution to my issue. It kept the books to a minimum on her bed but let her still have choices. She also didn't have to fall asleep on top of a million books - only one or two that she was reading at the moment.
Of course, she thinks they are great. She mostly thinks they are great because at nap time she can take all the books out, and they double as great beds for her dolls and stuffed animals. ;)
Whatever their use, they were a quick, easy and cheap project that was super satisfying to complete.
