Low Bookshelf for Kids – Montessori Style
We made two little bookshelves, which was easier than I thought it would be.
Our neighbor was making 7 bookshelves for a school his wife works at. She’s an Uber Montessori Teacher. He gave us the measurements of the bookshelves which we adjusted.
We decided to go with 28″ tall by 48″ wide and about 10″ deep. We carefully measured out the shelf distances:
With whatever we could find laying around.
We hammered in some trim nails, and instead of adding a back we had little wood sticks for support, which looked kinda funny but we weren’t going for perfect.
I really liked how my neighbor had this little trim around the edge, and the natural mixed with white…
They leaned to the side a bit, and I’d like to say the mistakes of white paint on the natural were because the kids helped, but that of course was me.
But we loved them. Our two little bookshelves. Soon to be populated with stuff.
These bookshelves cost about $60 together using #2 pine, from a local lumber shop. The big box stores might be even cheaper. So if you find yourself longing for some perfect height bookshelves and don’t want to spend hundreds, this was a fun family project. But you need a table saw, or a nice neighbor with one.
