Got an idea? Call a handy Grandpa.

BookshelfMDD reader Anna saw my post about the sling bookshelf that faces books outward so kids can see the book covers and loved the idea for her impending arrival. She didn't however love the design, so she enlisted her handy father to make one. Using the picture of a similar one from Pottery Barn Kids (I don't think they sell one anymore), her father made the one pictured. She said it cost about $20 in materials from Home Depot (most of the cost was paint) and the only tools used were a rotary saw, drill and maybe a hammer. Lucky for Anna the carpentry skills were free.

Nice job (soon-to-be) Grandpa. I'm thinking it looks like a project Home Depot should use for one of their Home Depot Clinics.
