The Bookshelf Project #19

This week's picture of bookshelves are from Dene Bebbington.



Dene mentioned that there are actually 8 Billy bookcases in the library. Now I'm envious that Ikea doesn't have a branch here in Manila.

I just love how all Dene's books are arranged so neatly. And I can see that there's some space left for recent books. I love it! What do you think of Dene's bookcases, dear reader?

I'm so jealous of her bookcases! I only have one little bookcase that's overflowing with books.

Hi, A Buckeye Girl! I'm so jealous too! I've always wished for a room such as this one!

"Green with envy" over this set up. The book cases look wonderful. We do have IKEA, but neither me or my husband are any good with a screwdriver...LOL

Hi, Diane! I can't wait for an Ikea to open here in Manila.

Wonderful set up! Wish I had enough room to set up so many bookshelves like this! Couldn't see how the books were arranged on the shelves, but if you tell me they're arranged alphabetically, I'll die of envy! *L*

Peter S. said...

Hi, Alexia! LOL at the dying of envy because of alphabetization.

Love the bookcases, I refuse to shp on line and the closest IKEA store is a state away, so I will be living with my envy.

Peter S. said...

Hi, Ryan! LOL at the living with envy thing.

*sigh* wonderful feature.

Thanks for the comments about my library. The books aren't arranged alphabetically, just loosely by category.

Diane, you only need a screwdriver if you want to fasten the Billies to the wall at the top. Putting them together is easy.

One tip about Billies: get them delivered rather than pick them up from the store. I had a nightmare getting them in and out of the car, and on and off the trolley. Although saying that, I made the mistake of collecting them on my own!

@Hagelrat: Thanks for dropping by. Send me a picture of your bookshelf!

@DeneBebbo: Thanks for the tip! And thanks for sharing your picture! We love it!

More great shelves! I will be having a shelf project soon as I am getting new ones going around the top of my reading room for Christmas!

Peter S. said...

Hi, Sheila! I can't wait to see your new bookshelves!
