Built-in book­shelves don’t have to be expen­sive or custom-made. These clever shelves were made using $4 Ikea Bekväm spice racks and hung to be eas­ily accessed by the small­est of the board book enthu­si­asts. Great for toy stor­age, too!

Speak­ing of repur­pos­ing, how about using a sim­ple drawer fit with short legs as a book bin. Posi­tion it at just the right height so kids can eas­ily dig around for their favorite reads.

Oh Happy Day! blog­ger Jor­dan Fer­ney, at the time liv­ing in a 500 sq. ft. apart­ment in San Fran­cisco with her hus­band and two sons, knows a thing or two about opti­mal stor­age. She pur­chased these low-lying wooden shelves from BOOK/SHOP for her kids’ shared room.

For the ulti­mate space saver, con­vert an entire wall to book stor­age, adding a lot of color and eye candy to a room. This style of shelv­ing is espe­cially great since it can make use of “dead” cor­ners in a room, where no fur­ni­ture would fit.

Book stor­age doesn’t always have to be all about books. Here the shelves (two Ikea Expe­dit shelv­ing units side-by-side would work nicely) dou­ble as a toy-car high­way, thanks to a well-placed J’habite ici sticker by Les Enfants du Design.

    This is a book­shelf I just made for our 2 and a half year old. It took about 16 hours. The design was a meld­ing of a few I had seen online. It was a lot of fun to make and an even bet­ter feel­ing to see the look on his face after installing it. He helped by push­ing the wall anchors in.
