A Reading Rainbow

Do you have some wasted space in your home? Do you love books? Do you have an obsessive need to color-code things? Well, you are in luck my friend. Today’s makeover is right up all three of your alleys! 
Check out this brilliant use of wall space by Better After reader Bridget, who simply painted the wall and added plywood shelves and Ikea brackets, and of course, her collection of brightly colored books to create a rainbow of literariness.  She says it was under $100 and is by far her favorite part of her house. I’ll say. It’s storage and a focal wall all in one. Fantastic!
