I'm looking for forward facing book strange for toddler so he can easily find books in the living room.

I need something not too big like something bigger then a bedside cabinet. Currently I have expedit bookcases which my son has his books in which I don't like.

I want to get forward facing book storage solution that is under £100. Would be good if its nearer £50 the £100. I had a look at sling bookcase storage - argos but don't like them as you can see the books hidden by fabric. I can't get tidy boos one as I can't screw anything to my walls and it looks to thin to stand on its own.

Any other ideas?

I think I've seen what you mean on pinterest? People are painting ikea spice racks and picture shelves and using them for book shelves...Like this...

Just google ikea spice rack bookshelves.

Oh I've just read you can't screw them into a wall, so you can screw them into the side of an existing piece of furniture... Like this.

You want the one from Great Little Trading Company. We have the large gallery one. IIRC they also do a smaller one.

Check eBay because there are often secondhand ones, I bought ours on there for £25.

we got IKEA small cabinets from the children's range and didn't get doors for them so the books are easy access

This is their current one. But this isn't the one we have, which can stand on the floor if needed.

If you do buy this one, don't forget to use the MN discount code for GLTC. Or search online, they always have discount codes knocking around!

But check eBay first!

Here's the one we have on eBay.

I used 4 rows of Ikea's longest picture rails, and they are great - cheap, functional, easy to install, and they take up hardly any room.

They look like this, although there are probably loads of examples online.
