Steal this Idea: DIY picture ledges

Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial.

Today's feature falls into the "of course" category straight from Viva Cindy - an easy DIY book ledge that anyone can love.  Especially great when you have an usually sized space and can't find something ready made or just have some extra wood laying around.

Starting with this

...she made this.

Check out all the details as well as this nursery's fabulous striped ceiling over at Viva Cindy.

postscript: *When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!

**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!


  1. such a great idea and so so easy to do!

  2. Genius Such a Great Easy Design!

  3. I love how versatile picture ledges are.  It's so easy to change things out on a whim.  We built some(by we, I mean I designed, and my handy hubby built) DIY picture ledges last year and I love being able to move things around and add new elements to the wall without having to patch holes in the wall.  Love the simplicity of her ledges!  Thanks for sharing.

  4. This would actually be so great for beside my bed. I review books, so I always have several I keep on hand. Right now I have about ten on a TV tray in my bedroom. No dice. BUT I need a place for them. This could work...
