Book = shelves

 I love books, old books, ratty books, fresh new ones.  I especially love children's books, I call them my poor mans art.  With books going out of fashion they are everywhere are very cheap.  I still have my collection of books I love but I picked these ones up at the dollar store, (as if you hadn't guessed).
I wanted ones with names that were child friendly and colorful.  I actually ended up reading 2 of the books, they were great. 

 I hung them above the changing table.  even though I am heading for a woodland theme, I ended up with many monkeys so here is Chester our favorite monkey, chillin' with bright eyed owlet.

I did not hang them at a right angle to give more options for use.  You can see the "L"  bracket I used under neath.  I attached it to the book and then to the wall.  I wanted to hide as much of it as I could.

I have my custom Owl in the tree art and our first baby picture matte. 

I have a few more tricks for this room I keep pugging a way at it.
