Bookcase: Organization and Display

A bookcase is an interesting piece of furniture. More often than not, it becomes a cluttered mess of collected items. Nothing ends up standing out, except the eyesore of it all.

When we lived in our condo a few years ago, that was exactly what happened to our Ikea bookcase.
Once in our new house, it was a new opportunity to make the book shelf everything I always wanted it to be. Of course, it is always changing, and so I thought I would take go ahead and show you its current iteration before it transforms into something else.

 Starting with a blank slate (a blank house at this point), we positioned the bookcase on a wall so that it was the first thing you saw when you headed toward the TV room.

Mission Chair: Sneak Peak

About a year and a half ago we found 4 chairs (find post here) destined for the dump. The owner happened to be curbside, and told us that the chairs had been saved from a hotel that was being demolished.

I am working on one of those chairs now - a mission style - year unknown.

The cushions had to be thrown away since plants were growing out of them.
