Budget DIY of the day: Spice rack kid's bookshelf

It's a well know fact that I love blogs like I love my own children. A lot. And I see and get a lot of ideas. The "Miscellaneous" folder on my desktop is always full to the brim with inspiration, potential blog posts, things that I'm "going to do". But this? This has me clearing my diary and driving to Ikea tomorrow!

Ikea Bekvam Spice Rack, $2.49 each. I know, right?

I have the perfect little wall in Anoushka's room for them between the doorway and cupboard (she inhales books!), and might do a colour behind them. Might paint them white or a colour too. They're 40cm wide, so thinking of doing a few "shelves" comprised of pairs of spice racks, side by side with a 10cm gap between them. And the best bit? A 3 year old can put the books away ALL BY THEMSELVES.


  1. I'll see you at Ikea! BRILLIANT! Thanks for sharing. x

  2. I know! Awesomeness. Here's 20 bucks, buy me a few and post to my ikea-less state, will you?! ;)

  3. An awesome idea...I think in a bright colour would look awesome! Great thinking 99 ! P.S I received my little prizes in the post yesterday...posted about it ..thanks so much again Louise..you made my day ;) x
