Our basement room is finally *pretty much* finished by purchasing, installing, and filling three bookshelves from IKEA.
First of all, I had no idea how many books we had acquired. Even after sorting through them and giving five full boxes to our local thrift store, there wasn’t enough room for all of our books. Some will have to reside in our family room. The best part? Now I no longer have to rummage through boxes to find a particular book.
Second, my artsy and crafty stuff has found a home and blends in well with the books on the bookshelf. Once again, I no longer have to hunt for my supplies.
Third, I now have to refinish a bookshelf for our family room that’s needed for the surplus books. One completed project often leads to another…..
