Son of a Gun!

Surely you have seen all the cute little book nooks being fashioned out of corners and closets and whatnot these days?  Thrifty Decor Chick did a great one HERE.  I love the idea, but I just don’t have any closet space to spare.  Like I’m going to sacrifice my VHS collection and 20-gallon tote full of fabric scraps that I’ll never use for READING?!  Psh!  Well Jennifer rocked my world with this idea: a made-over gun rack!  Perfect for the closet challenged.  So cute!

  1. What a great idea for a classroom! Can you imagine the incentive this presents for earning the right to use the ‘reading nook’ for reading time? Wish I was still teaching! I would have made this right away! Great work!

  2. totally cute, cute, cute!

  3. That is FANTASTIC! I totally want one now. Absolutely love.

  4. What an awesome idea! And the little boy looks so completely adorable, doesn’t he?


  5. What a surprise, that may have been one of the most creative “afters” I’ve seen in a long time.

  6. I was really thinking that gun rack was hopeless….But wow, it turned out GREAT!

  7. That’s the type of before and after that completely amazes me. I’m pretty good an envisioning things in a different color, rooms with a different layout or with different finishes. But I would NEVER in a million years see that gun cabinet at a flea market and think, “I’ll turn that into a cute reading nook!” That is true inspiration.
