Creative book storage ideas

January 28, 2009

Check out these wonderfully creative bookshelves that I found on the Better Homes and Gardens website. Doesn’t it make you want to buy more books just to fill up these cool shelves?

    I love the bedroom idea. I don’t have any bookshelves in there and there is plenty of room for them. I may have to do this.

    I like the one that goes up around the window.

    I would love any one of these designs in my house…right now I have all my books on the floor! 😛

    Oh my … I could just stare at those bookshelves for hours!

    Wow! I love all these pics!

    I love seeing photos like this. That will never be my house or my books but it all looks so lovely…

    I’m so envious. These are gorgeous! Thanks for making me drool 🙂

    Those shelves are cool. I like the ones in the bedroom the best.

    I am seriously lusting after those shelves!

    I ran across this site a while back that you might enjoy (if you haven’t already seen it.. I’m sometimes behind the times:)). It’s a woman’s blog who requested that people send in pics of their home libraries from all over the world. It’s so much fun to look at.

    Oh, those are beautiful…

    The sad thing is that I wouldn’t have to purchase any – or many – books to fill them up, I have enough in stacks on the floor of my room and in stacks in storage in the basement.

    Okay, I’m ready to move and find a house with a cool wall of shelves too. Oh, the possibilities!

  17. January 30, 2009 3:02 pm

    Actually, it just makes me want to buy a house with more space and light! I have plenty of books to fill out the shelves.

    I love the second and third photos…what fantastic ideas. I wish I lived in a home to try them out in…the apartment is not really a place to start constructing things….lol

    Oh I can only dream! Not the first one though, at least not while we’re in earthquake country. 😉

  20. January 31, 2009 6:24 am

    BTW, happy belated Chinese New Year!

    Oh how funny, I had the very same thought as tanabata- I wouldn’t want hundreds of books above my head while sleeping in earthquake country! But they sure are beautiful.

    I would love any of the three types of shelving! It’s my dream to one day have a true library room in my house complete with a large antique globe and a fireplace.

    I love these shelves! I’m going to post about it, just because I love looking at bookshelves. thanks for showing them 🙂 and giving the link, Stephanie.

    The 80/20 rule refers to food correct? Believed it had
    been 90 thoroughly clean and 10 junk, perhaps that is been modified because of
    the further energy you get from junk food? I swear everyone eats too small.
