here was a super easy project that i had seen at a couple other blogs. i asked my son to bring me home some pallets from work. He is so awesome that he brought them that afternoon! i immediately got to work saw up what i needed to make the two shelves. i used pallet word to fill the bottom of the shelves so my books wouldn't fall through and knock out the cat :)
when i hung them i made sure to screw into studs because they are kinda heavy. they are getting a good response so far!
