Books + Shelves

Living in small apartments since college led to a curated bookcase, but hidden piles of books were usually tucked all over the place. Now that I’m in a bigger house, I’m taking advantage of all that space… finally there’s enough room for all my books! A few recent additions (first furniture purchases for the new house!) have helped me get organized.
Before:
All books in one room, and a badly overflowing bookcase. When I needed a cookbook, having it stored in the office wasn’t ideal, ditto for craft books.

And now! A peek at my books in their new homes:
The office:
Adult books (in color order) on the two bookcases, with the bottom shelves reserved for Newbery Challenge books and a basket of holiday books.

The sewing room:
In my new bookcase, I managed to store all the children’s picture books, craft books, AND quilts. This new guy worked out even better than I thought!

Kitchen: 
On the bar cart I finally got out some of my breakables and added a basket for easy access to cookbooks.

Now that books are within easy reach where I actually need them, they seem so much happier!
