Before and After: Bookcase

The bookcase before:
Then I grouped the books by color, got rid of some, and added a piece of artwork.
I think the pops of color add a fun dimension to my studio. And apparently I remember books better by their color so it's easier to find what I'm looking for.

If any of you give this a try, I'd love to see pictures.


  1. It's nice that you incorporated your own artwork onto these creative shelves, which can be more than bookshelves. They're art shelves, showcasing many arts :)

  2. I've never heard of someone grouping books by color, but it's great. And, of course, it makes sense that an artist who loves words would group her books that way. I might try it!

  3. I think I need to clean out my bookcase. Yours is making me want to step into my computer and get a closer look.

  4. Well done and a great idea! I've enjoyed looking through your previous posts too! The story you wrote was sweet...I can think of many elderly people who would say holding a baby was the highlight of their month!

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Looks lovely! I'll have to remember this - I was just putting away books this afternoon and inwardly moaning that I have no organizational strategy!

    Your picture is what REALLY makes the bookshelf pop, though. :)

  6. Great idea! I love the height arrangement - you won't miss a thing by that.

    Thanks for the visit and enjoy the rest of th week!

  7. Ah bookcases - yours looks beautiful - I love the colour groupings. Have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed 2012.

  8. That looks great.. such a simple act and such a huge payoff..


Thank you so much for your visit. I love hearing from you and dearly appreciate your comment!
