The old sofa
is gone and I’m making some changes to our living room
. This simple, inexpensive addition is really making me happy. I added a leaning bookcase
to the small wall that faces our front door. It’s a pleasant scene to come home to.
I didn’t need to buy anything to fill these shelves except some fresh flowers. Everything was in my hall closet or different rooms around the house. I love how this shelf takes up very little space in the room, but gives me plenty of space to display some of my favorite treasures.
Here’s the sources (by shelf):
Green pot – thrifted, Woven trays – bought in Papua New Guinea
Dala Horses – Grey one bought in Sweden, white one bought at the Rose Bowl Flea Market, Gold geometric thing – bought at Hobby Lobby and then spray painted gold
Books – just a few from the nerds collection, Bowl – Nate Berkus for Target (Fall 2014)
Vase – Nate Berkus for Target (Fall 2014), White and Mercury Glass Votive – Target (Christmas 2014), Books – more of the nerds collection
Basket – bought in Papua New Guinea, Blanket – vintage, bought in Eureka, CA
I think this is a piece that would work really well in a lot of spaces. And I love the idea of lining a whole wall with them side by side. Big or small space, this bookcase feels light and airy.
