What color are yours?

I love that deep blue. Ours are red cherry wood. Pretty standard, but I think it's nice against our bare, white walls.

Love book shelves!

Ours are boring, my hubs gave away his enormous antique bookcase before he moved into mine when we got married - still regretting that.

Ah B&P, we've been looking for a giant antique bookcase! We found a few that were remarkable but wouldn't fit into our freight elevator, even as they disassembled a bit... the search continues.

BCN, you can't really go wrong with classic wood cases. Right now we've got shoddy ones that were a temporary solution.

Beth, I'm so glad. Nothing like a little pretty storage!

These is definitely one of my favorite treatments!

I love what you did with the bookshelves! I have many books as well. Some of them I had since high school and college years. Some of them are textbooks. I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away and I haven’t really had the time to give them away. They just stay wherever they are, some in boxes, some are just anywhere in my room, accumulating dust. Many times I’ve thought about getting those books all organized but I always plan to start a mini-library project that seems too ambitious, so I ended up doing nothing about the books. However, recently I found the site and I was able to get some tips and techniques on designing a bookshelf and making sure they fit in the room so I’d give these books another try.
