Book Bin {Handmade Holiday}

Wednesday / 3 comments

One of the things I love about building gifts is that you can afford to give something nicer than you could afford to buy. My family chooses names and I have my brother who has 4 kids. So my husband and I built them all bookbins.  We used Ana White bookholder plans and built the large book holders.  I spent $18 on wood so each book holder is about $4.50!

They turned out so cute.  I personalized them with vinyl letters cut out with my silhouette machine.  I even added a little magnetic strip that I got at Ikea to my nephews for cars and trains (the matchbox cars have to be completely metal for them to stick).  Now they will have a little spot by their bed to keep their favorite books.


  1. Brook you have been busy!!! Every day it's a new build, seriously you must have some little elves working for you. Ana would be proud.

  3. [...] The pulls got replaced with matching ones from Lowe’s that were only $1 each!  Love how the dressers turned out.  The cute book bins are ones we made the girls for Christmas. [...]
