A Place for The Books

Last week, I went to my secret place and purchased an old door. I had no exact plans for the door and to be honest, no place for it. I was in the mood to get crafty and use my hands and I figured that I’d find a solution for the lack of extra space later on. As I was driving home I was thinking about all the furniture that was already delicately placed in my room. The thought came to me that if I wanted this door to be a part of my room’s decor, it had to serve a purpose as well. Seconds later, I knew what my new door was going to be transformed into: a bookshelf! You see, although technology is rapidly moving forward and allowing people to read books on Kindles and Tablets I may be one of the few people who have not joined this movement. There’s something special about going to the bookstore and picking up a fresh book, feeling the pages, and writing thoughts and doodling within the pages. With that said, I have more books than I have space for. A bookshelf was most definitely needed.

So in the spirit of making my lovely door bookshelf – I found some lovely bookshelves that would be perfect for a home.

This may be the most amazing library I’ve ever seen. What I would do to have a room in my house like this. Absolutely brilliant in everyday.

I love this concept as well. Transforming a whole wall into shelves and topping it off with a ladder!

I adore this room. The bookshelf is wonderful, but I think I mostly love it because of the grand piano.

Can you imagine this being in your house? To die for! It reminds me of My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn.
