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.
