Sometimes, I find things that are just plain inspired. While not my personal projects, I want to share them with you.
While we were visiting our newest nephew last weekend, I became totally obsessed with the FABULOUS shelves my brother-in-law created in Spencer’s nursery.
They are made from vintage suitcases and I think they may be some of the coolest artwork-slash-shelving-slash-storage I’ve ever encountered. I mean, totally inspired.
To mount them, he drilled a board of the same width as the suitcase onto the wall. Then, he cut off the suitcase to the depth desired and drilled a screw into the sides of the suitcase to go into the boards.
This is part of Spencer’s vintage transportation nursery. I think this is such a great theme for a boy’s nursery. The Route 66 sign was another detail I loved. (You can also check out the Route 66 basket I found and the quilt I made from yesterday.)
This has my mind spinning for ideas of other things I can make into shelves.
