Needless to say, I have quite a few books. I try to purge every once in a while - usually when Mama Hen has a yard sale - but there's just some books that I can't part with. Unfortunately, storage for these books has been a dilemma for quite a while. I had this one bookshelf in my bedroom that was completely filled to capacity. Each shelf had books double-rowed and books laying on top of other books. It made me sad.
Jay and I looked forever for a really nice double bookshelf that wouldn't put us in the poor house but we were sadly not successful. I got fed up a couple of weeks ago and ordered two new bookshelves from Overstock. They came in last week and Hubs was sweet enough to put them together.
I ended up putting them in my sewing room and they went from this
Next I moved the stuff from my baby bookshelf to the one in my bedroom. Better, huh?
I'm not gonna lie. I'm in love. And I'll admit it - I just go back there and smile. I'll leave you with this becauseI have felt this way so many times:
