Disclosure: Thanks to Tidy Books for working with me and Mommy’s Block Party, I was lucky enough to receive the Tidy Books bookshelf, free of charge, in exchange for an honest review.  Tidy Books products including their bookshelves are not just nice to look at they are good for the planet too!  Your experience with this product may differ.

Cameron’s Tidy Books bookshelf (before)

Now, I would consider myself pretty handy.  I tend to be the one who puts stuff together around our house; and the Tidy Books bookshelf was no different.  That was until I opened the box and found the directions.  There were about 100 screws, and the most simple directions ever; so I thought I was in for a long afternoon.

The worlds most direct and simplest instructions EVER

Boy, was I pleasantly surprised at the ease that our Tidy Books bookshelf went together.  The directions were simple, easy to follow and most importantly, all the pieces were there.  It did take a little bit to put it together, since all of the screws used an allen wrench to tighten, but nonetheless, it was a smooth process.

All put together on the kitchen floor

Now came the “fun part...” mounting our Tidy Books bookshelf to the wall.  I again wondered- how could this be simple?  Well, by this time, I was exhausted, not from putting the Tidy Books bookshelf together, but the mass rearranging of Cameron’s room to put it in there.  So, along comes my hubby, I told him where I wanted it and bam, it was done.  So simple to put small holes in the wall, the plastic screw holdy thingies in there to keep it sturdy, and ta-da, we had Tidy Books success!

Cameron’s Tidy Books bookshelf mounted and full of books

Now the directions say it will hold 80 books, and I am sure that if they are smaller, you can definitely get more on there.  I have 30 books on there and there is plenty of room left for more.  Not only do we love the look of this sleek and super cute Tidy Books bookshelf, Cameron does too.  When he went to go to bed last night he saw it and said, “oooooooo ook momma ooooooo,” so it has the 14 month old seal of approval, also.
