Another new pretty....

Got a new bookcase because my old one was wayyyy too small. Here's the before and after.

Before:



After:





They would still be double-stacked if I'd brought everything out of the closet. Ugg. I love books, I just need a bigger house to put 'em in.

Upcoming: a rant about relationships and more stupid people.

Listening: "Cab"...Train

  1. That reminds me that I need to pick up some boards and bricks to set up the rest of my books. It makes a helluva difference mentally to have at least the appearance of order. By the by, I need you to email directions to the hacienda when you get a chance.

  2. The new bookshelf is fabulous. I still need to build the one I bought a couple of weeks ago.

  3. Much better! I love it.

    I know someone that has an entire 3rd floor of just books.

  5. Mmm, pretty.

    Last summer my dad put in three 8 foot and two 4 foot shelves on one of my walls. Sadly, they're nearly full and I've begun putting new books on Bellan's bookshelf.

  6. I need about fifteen of the new ones. These damn books are almost crowding me out of my apartment.

  7. Nice shelves. I fill mine as fast as I get 'em, too. It's a fact we have to live with. :)

  8. Charles, the bricks and boards would've probably been a smarter choice--expandable and all.

    E, make hubby do it! He owes you for all the cycling.

    Kat, I'm drooling at the thought! I want a room full of floor-to-ceiling shelves one day...complete with sliding ladder!

    Thanks, Marg!

    Whahahaha, Heather! Are Bellan's not full? I'm surprised!

    X, but isn't that the best kind of crowded? :)

    Bookfool, such is this thing we call addiction. I can live with it! :)

  9. Nope, he's never been much of a book buyer unless it's a book he loves. He's always been a heavy library user. Sad for him, more shelves for me!

  11. That's one seriously spiffy bookcase. Where did you get it?

    I'm going to have to pick up another short bookcase soon. I've got all kinds of witchy book still boxed up in my closet, and they need a home (that can be easily covered when my grandmother comes over).

  12. Heather, I wish I could say the same about myself!!! lol I need to not be a book collector.

    AMS, I'm gonna need one for shoes next!!!

    GP, this one was a Target find! Because I lurv Target. They had a bunch of pretty ones, but this one rolls, so I was sold.

    Thanks, Funkmeister!
