Before and after

Before you sits 80% of my book collection:

I only thought about taking a picture after I removed the books from the folding bookshelves I've used since college. We're re-doing the guest bedroom, since the bed has been sitting on the floor since we've moved here. We rent, so please ignore the blue sky wallpaper, it came with the house.....but look! Brand new, grown up bookshelves! Thank you IKEA and my stimulus check!


I think when we actually buy a house, I'm going to need to add another bookcase or 2.

Getting ready for me to come and stay - really not necessary to do all that work just for me. I appreciate it - but you shouldn't have.

My moms book collection now takes up three rooms in her house.

Cool bookcases. I also happen to like the cloud wallpaper. Beats the beige of my rental apt. :)

So isn't it like against the law or something that you spent your stimulus check at a Swedish store? I think that was in the fine print. Just so you know. They're coming to take away your shelves and kick you out of the country. Enjoy them while you can! hee hee

Wow, those look great! I actually don't mind the sky wallpaper, at least in the picture. I think it adds something whimsical to the setting.
