New Shelf + Modpodge

I know I needed a small shelf for my classroom to fit under my window.... So I went to Wal-Mart and purchased this little guy.

To make my 3-ring binders fit I had to have the hubby drill extra holes. I know there is a super small slot in between the two shelves but I think they'll be handy with some of my taller teacher manuals that may not fit on the shelves. I'll just slide them in horizontally!

Well I've been at home pinterest-ing and experiencing borderline boredom... So insert scrapbook paper and


Here's the two shelves before I placed them in.

I think I have a little bit too much time on my hands this summer..... Someone get me back in my classroom!!! :)
Pin It!


  1. what are the dimensions of this shelf? How many 3ring binders were you able to fit on it? I am looking for something to fit about 48 binders on!

    1. Hi Kathy! I am not sure how many binders I fit in it. I would say 48 1" binders would be great.

      Here is the link to where I found it... http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-3-Shelf-Bookcase-Black/10167658

      It says the dimensions are 32.0 x 11.6 x 29.0
      Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. OMG. The co teacher and I dislike the look of the putty metal bookcases in our classroom. Your idea would be great for them. Cannot wait to get back there to start the project. How long did it take for you to complete the bookcase?
