While organizing a bunch of old pictures on my computer the other day, I realized how many versions I have of the bookcases. Hopefully they have evolved for the better. You be the judge and let's start at the very beginning...
My house in Kansas- 2006 maybe. This pic brings back memories, both good and not so good. Maybe more on that later. Also- wow, check out how high that mirror is hung.
Right after we got married- late 2007. Say hello to Lloyd.
Spring 2008- the trees on top... they're dead. But you'd never know it, right?
Summer 2008- yes, one of the palms died.
Christmas 2008- David's stocking didn't go up until Christmas eve. Some people didn't get enough spankings when they were small for touching their gifts before Christmas.
Our house now.
These are my two favorite shelves.
All the best books on top and fun colorful old ones below.
Before I last rearranged, our books were organized alphabetically by the authors last name, which to me made the most sense. But David kept making fun of our Dewey Decimal system and I thought it needed refreshed too so.... after some researching on the internet, they're basically by category and size with a little age and color indexing thrown in. I definitely think it looks better, but who knows if we'll be able to locate a specific book. How do you organize your bookshelves? Or do you organize them? :)
