Reading corner in little girls room! We used plastic rain gutters from Lowes. Totally cheap and the the books are easy to reach and choose this way. You need to buy the long gutters and cut them to size. You'll also need end caps, and corner pieces.
Why didn't I think of that?!?! Easy wainscotting idea: buy frames from Michael's, glue to wall and paint over entire lower half. Got this tip from a savvy home improvement person. Ha! That's stupid easy.
