Bookshelves For Bookworms
It’s not quite unknown that I and my boyfriend have amassed quite a lot of books, stacks and stacks. Literally, stacks–there’s some towering and taking over a corner of our tiny, odd-shaped living space. For a few years now, even with 2 jammed full bookshelves (his and hers, naturally) we’ve been speaking about “doing something about those books.” But just never put any energy into what we talked and talked about. I’ve been hesitant to start making “permanent” adjustments to the apartment that I felt like I could always say goodbye to once another year was up on our lease, and planning out the wall shelves seemed to always take a backseat to other purchases (travel, fashion, you know the goooood stuff). But finally, I think we both can’t stand it anymore–this is the year.
Of course, if we had our dreams come true, we’ve have an entire room and wall devoted to books like you see on all the design blogs, a nook waiting for you to cozy up in. But alas, we’re getting crafty and just probably going to be selective in our hardware but go for Ikea dark shelves (again, I just can’t fathom pouring out hard earned dollars for a shelf I’m specifically building for this space and won’t use again). But for fun, here are some that are so cool they have me blissfully dreaming bookworm dreams.
