the book chat - BOOKSHELVES!

I like to write my posts the morning that I plan to publish them. Unfortunately last night our computer kicked it. At least I'm pretty sure its finally dead. Joey knows a lot about computers and he's been fixing for months maybe a year? It's time to get a new one. BUT they're expensive! So I'm blogging from my tiny netbook. I loved it at first. Now not so much. It's extremely slow and after a while my hands hurt from typing on the tiny keyboard.....


Today is the book chat!!! I'll struggle with my netbook because I can't miss out! 
The topic is bookshelves. I've been looking at getting new wall mounted shelves for a while. You see... as I complained about in this post our furniture doesn't seem to fit too well in the house. We moved the computer desk into the family room and it took the spot of my large bookcase. Now my books, picture frames, and decorative items that sat on that bookcase are homeless. Sort of. I guess you could say they are being fostered on and in my dining room hutch:

EEK! Looks pretty bad huh? I hate walking through there and seeing that mess. In other news, I have BIG plans for a furniture makeover in the dining room. That stuff needs to be updated ASAP!

And now for some Pinsperation. I'd love to hang some shelves like these:

I like how these shelves make the books look like framed art.
I like how messy but at the same time put together this looks.
Are you kidding me? How cool does this look!?!

Hopefully soon I'll get around to getting the shelves. I feel like there are a million things I need to get done. None of them too important but all of them things I want completed SOON. I'm very impatient...

Happy Book Chat Day!!!!


  1. Yay!! I'm so glad you found a way to book chat today! I had to blog from my iPad for a couple weeks and it was awful. So thank you for putting up with your tiny keyboard to join us. :) Might I just add that I have a deeply emotional love affair with my iMac and I could never go back to know, just in case you're computer shopping. ;)
    Anyway, I love those shelves that look like frames! How clever.
    I made a shelf out of an antique book (it's somewhere on the blog) and it was so easy! Now when you hang it, it looks like floating books. It's pretty cool.

  2. Those Frame/Bookshelves are SO cute. I want!!

  3. I love the hanging shelves. The first one is also on my Pinterest and one of my favorites!

  4. I love that crazy shelf! So neat!!!

  5. I like the 2nd one. Love the incorporation of art with the books.
