i wanted to organize the books by color so it would look nice (i know... i know.) but we have so many books that it ended up being impossible. i mean, we have a lot of books. a ridiculous amount. (do we need old college text books and twenty bibles? probably not. but we have them.) so stuffing them in the shelves while trying to make things look simple and organized proved to be a challenge.
sad bookshelves feel the pressure of their sloppy appearance.
so i made a creative decision, one i was actually happy with! i decided to make curtains to cover the bottom half of our bookshelves, to hide the shelves where the printer, my sewing machine, and the less attractive books are stuffed.
river helping. he did all the dirty work, like re-threading the machine. you know.
happy bookshelves reveling in their makeover!
organizing by color proved to be the right decision, and putting the curtains up was a pretty good "fake" baby-proofing move, as river pretty much ignores the shelves now. there's nothing hanging out to catch his eye. :)
