Reader request – bookshelves

Posted on Thu, 15 Apr 2010 by KiM

Sigrid from Norway emailed with a reader request that I thought I’d tackle today, because it’s an easy one. 🙂 “I love library and rooms and walls full with bookshelves. I would be honoured if you could post some pictures of rooms and walls full with bookshelves.” I would give anything to have a library, a room filled with floor to ceiling bookcases to fill with my ever-growing collection of shelter mags and books. I love to see how people cope with their own book and mag collections. Here are some rooms where large collections are easily stored away.

Just found this photo in my stash – LOVE THIS!! (I wanted to do this in my office when I was redecorating it last year but couldn’t find decent looking crates).

Flickr finds – Ikea’s Expedit shelving

Posted on Sun, 25 Jan 2009 by KiM

Now that my kitchen is complete, I have been thinking about other rooms in my house that desperately need help. My bedroom is a biggie. It is so hideous right now. Pale yellow walls, and last March I ripped out the huge closet that I didn’t need. This is essentially what it’s looked like since then.

For the wall you see there, across from the bed, I’m thinking of shelving to house the knick knacks I love but don’t go anywhere else in the house, and for all my magazines that to my horror, currently reside in the dungeon/basement. I’m leaning towards 2 white Ikea Expedit shelving units (the 16 cube ones). So for my Flickr finds today, I thought I’d see how people are using their Expedits bookshelves.

I’d like to use a couple/few cubes along the bottom for cat beds, because I’m hoping it’ll get at least some of the cats off the bed at night so I can have room to move. One of the photos above, ernmcc’s, shows what I mean, but then I found this one….
