Bedside Book Storage…..LOVE THIS!


A few weeks ago I came across this tutorial for a hanging book holder. Now around here, we have a problem when it comes to the books that are read before bed time. They are read and then tossed on the floor, creating a big mess and adding a lot of wear to the books. Sure, they could be put back on the bookshelf with pretty minimal effort, but it doesn’t happen. When I saw this tutorial, I knew that it would be the perfect solution to our little problem!

I had the kids pick out their own special fabrics and went to town on my sewing machine. They were seriously easy to put together! My dad is a skilled wood worker, so I enlisted his help with the part that actually holds the book slings in place. I can’t even begin to tell you how pleased I am with how these turned out. The kids can put their own night time books away without getting out of bed, and it really adds a special personalized touch to their sleeping spaces!

Without further ado, here are the finished products!

I have one more sling sewn up that will go in our newly finished attic as soon as it is finished.  In the future I’ll probably make some shorter ones for our little office area.  The options are endless!

  6. What a cool idea. And I love your finished products. I’m not so sure I can pull this off, but I have a cool mom-in-law who could. And because I hope to live nearer to her quite soon, I’ll have to keep this idea handy. Thanks for sharing!
