Old Project - Book case

I made this hanging bookshelf for my daughter when she was very young. It was one of the first things I made. I think its over 30 years old now but not sure.

It’s holding pretty well after 30 years.

I just put up 2 of the exact same thing – looks to be exactly 1/4 the size of yours. However, mine were IKEA that my wife forced onto me. I reenforced them by attaching a plywood back and hanging them on French cleats, but I doubt they’ll pass the 30 year mark.
