I spent my day off digging out everything I own, putting everything in different piles, finding places for all the items I am keeping, and throwing out all the items I have no use for. Most of the items I am throwing out are old sketch books and random “Junk” (ticket stubs, my crown from Medieval Times, old magazines from 1995, scraps of paper to small to use for any projects. . .)
After my big organize the stuff day, I discovered I have a large amount of books I do not wish to part with. I really don’t have room to fit a big bookcase in my space and even if I did a cheap bookcase is expensive to buy.
So I decided shelves maybe a good choice. After all I have lots of wall space.
I found some shelves that interested me:
- Honeycomb Shape Shelve
- A Corner Shelf Requires you to have a corner free. You can purchase the Magazine File from Ikea (you get 2 for $9.99 which is really cheap). Stain, the wood to your liking and nail into the wall.
- And lastly I found 2 different DIY versions of the Invisible Shelf (The price isn’t to bad for the shelf but it is way more fun to make it yourself.)
- www.instructables.com/id/Invisible-Book-Shelf requires you ruin a book which is fine if you find a book you don’t really care for and can get for free but I love all my books so this was a no go.
- http://maydecemberhome.blogspot.com/2009/05/invisible-bookshelves.html is the version if you don’t want to ruin a book
Well I should probably go and get the supplies and start making these shelves. I am off to create!
Tomorrow I will have some links on storage. I found some really cute storage ideas that will work really well with my space.
