Book Attack!

OMG, it's an actually home-related post.  Don't fall over.  (Although, technically it's about furniture not remodeling.  Sorry people laying tile and scraping walls, I will not be dishing out any nuggets of wisdom today.)

One of the perks of marrying a woodworker is that when you realize that books are totally taking over your life, you have someone on your team qualified to deal with that little problem.  We have a little niche in our guest room wall, created by a chimney, just crying out for some built-in shelves.  Out of respect for the plaster, these aren't actually built-in, but they sure look like it!  Check out the beauteousness of my husband's creations.

So much shelf space!  Yay!  (I haven't gotten around to artistically arranging the shelves yet, but don't you worry, I will!)

You can't really tell from the above photos, but he was going for an Art Nouveau-esque design on the uprights which is really quite beautiful.  Let's try again:
 There, you can kind of see it.  It's a beautiful design...which unfortunately is being obscured by beautiful books. Not the worst thing in the world.

Further things are afoot in the household including a craft room re-sort and a massive furniture rearrangement, so stay tuned!
