    8. Make walls work for you. Similarly to using multifunction furniture, a lot of homeowners and designers are taking advantage of available wall area to bump up storage capacity, sometimes eliminating the need for conventional storage pieces. Using wall space can make organizing and finding books and toys easier for your child.These bookshelves, Gick says, are actually picture display ledges from Ikea. They have a low profile and don’t protrude far into the room like a traditional bookshelf would. The cute letters above were made by Gick and are cleverly covered in pages from vintage books.

    7. Vintage book illustration letters. These are actually the work of a pro crafter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try it at home. Pick up some plain cardboard or papier-mâché letter forms at the craft store, and gather a stack of old children’s books — this is the perfect way to use a beautiful old book that is too damaged to read. Carefully trace around each letter onto a book page, then cut out the letter with a craft knife. Use spray adhesive or decoupage to attach the illustrations to the letter forms.

    “We love to add touches that are personal and unique,” Gick says. Her own daughter’s “Read to Me” T-shirt inspired this custom piece, which she made by cutting up vintage children’s books. It has been such a hit that Gick’s firm will now do it for you, too. Each piece is original, as different books are used. The book rail is another touch that has become a signature for the designer’s company. “People love to see the books, and it creates a wonderful display,” Gick says.
