YES! Today is the day I am going to be showing ya'll my bookcase!!!! I have had my bookcase for about...ten months now? Before I had my bookcase I stored all of my books on smaller bookcases in my closet. I couldn't enjoy looking at them in there so I decided that I would like a big bookcase to have out in my room.
I found my bookcase on Craigslist, me my dad and brother went and got it. It was black, which doesn't go with my room, AT ALL! So, my Daddy painted it a nice creamy color for me. It matches my room perfectly!!! As the months have rolled by, I have gotten new knick-knacks to display on it (of course, new books, too) and I am so happy with how it looks. I still can't fit ALL of my books on it, so some still remain in my closet. ;) And now the moment you have all been waiting for, I present to you...my bookcase. (I apologize in advance for not great picture quality)
At the top of my bookcase I have some vintage suitcases with vintage hats on top. Next to them I have three vintage cameras.
The top shelf is the only shelf that I have read ever single book on it. From book reviews to just...books I read. ;) For décor, I have two vintage cameras.
My second shelf from the top has books I haven't read and or finished reading. For knick-knacks I have another vintage hat, a metal sewing machine (it's cool and rusted), a crocheted tea pot (that is supposed to be an ornament, but I like it as décor), and a vintage tin container (I LOVE vintage tins!!).
The third shelf contains my vintage/old books. I love me some old books!!! <3
Ahhh...the fourth shelf. This shelf contains my beloved Tolkien and Lewis books. I collect different copies of LOTR and I'm up to five different copies of The Hobbit. :D As for decorations, I have a neat container that looks like a vintage camera, with a Mickey Mouse pen in it I got from Mexico. On the opposite side I have another vintage camera (can you tell I like em'?) and the little brown pouch? Inside of it is a little thingy that I believe is for a camera to help it with the flash, something like that.
The fifth shelf....It's blurry. I apologize. Anyways, this shelf is a cross between classical and fairytales (and Melanie Dickerson). For décor, there is this little boy on a bicycle and on the other end is notepad paper that comes out of a box that looks like a typewriter.
And the sixth and final shelf contains...a mix of different things. From more classical to Janette Oke and hiding behind King Raven is Frank Pretti and others. Really just a miscellaneous shelf.
And the overall view, along with a glimpse into my room. Well I hope you enjoyed getting a peek at some of my books. And I also hope you have a great day!! Blessings ~ Morgan
