And filling it with old books. Oldies but goldies!

I love filling my shelves. Since I like mostly nonfiction, my book collection is a time capsule for past hobbies and interests.

With books, framed photos, knickknacks, etc. I love your idea of hanging something on the back wall of the case; I’d never thought of that!

There may be a problem with the shared bedroom link, I tried to click but got an error. I’d love to see it!

I so look forward to it every time. I still haven’t found one system that’s stolen my heart, but I do like organizing them by color, just for fun. :)

Last time I redid my shelves (by color, of course!) I thought a lot about this.

My love of bookshelves started when I was very small. My grandparents kept a special shelf, low to the ground, full of books just for us grandchildren. There were old Bobbsey Twins and Boxcar Children books and dozens of Golden Books with delicious illustrations. I would make a beeline for the shelf as soon as I walked in the door–after stopping for a Caramel Nip from the always-full candy dish!

It makes me smile every time we visit Great-Grandma now to see my own children settle in at the bookshelf with a good supply of Caramel Nips.

We have floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in our living room that we built-in and I love the vibe from all those classic leather spines. I prefer the shelves to be just books so there are no knick knacks mixed in – just hardcore books.

We have a large bookshelf in our living room that the previous owners left. It was a bit ratty but we painted it out and it looks fine. Filled with books and other decorative items.

And the reading nook outside the girl’s bedroom – had those shelves made when we moved in. It was such a teeny tiny space that you couldn’t really use it for anything else BUT a reading nook.

I DO have to unpack the books and the kitchen when moving. And on the unpacking line of things, just got back from two weeks at a rustic cottage and had to unpack immediately! Think I might need some help??!!

My daughter and son have wonderful displays in their room and I am looking to build a small corner bookshelf in our living room – a reading nook really. I have bookcases in the basement, but I want to find a way to move them into the playroom/office now that the kids no longer need as much toy storage. I love the look of books, especially without the dust covers. My dream would be a dining room with 12 ceilings and a wall of bookcases right up to the ceiling – don’t books and dining just go well together?

My favorite was filling up the kids bookcase, they were so happy to see their books, and color coding my cookbooks on my special cookbook bookcase.
