Discussion: Which Bookshelf?
Kel Sunday, August 03, 2014 discussionI have a small dilemma. My book collection is once again outgrowing my shelves. See exhibits below:
Of course, I could double and triple stack everything on my existing shelves...but then I can't look at the pretty spines. :)
So, the dilemma: how to go about procuring a new bookshelf.
There are all the usual avenues: purchasing a cheapo cardboard model from Wal-Mart or Target; purchasing a good, but expensive wood piece; stacking them on the floor; sleeping on the floor and giving the books the bed; and/or building one myself.
I'm kind of tempted to try that last one. The bookshelf I built a while back with my friend is still standing- a little crooked, but still standing- and I feel like I'm ready to tackle another project. Maybe something like this?
On the other hand, building projects take time...and energy. I still have some time before the stacks of unshelved books completely take over, so I'd like to ask. I've probably asked before (and forgotten), but I'm asking again. :) What route do you typically take when new bookshelves are needed?
