Book Shelves

Oh, I was checking out this blog today & saw this lovely bookcase tree...


I am in love. So cute & would be adorable in a kids room.

I also love this stair bookcase...

I truly HATE the fake wood WalMart bookcases we have, & would lovely something original like these. But since the website with these bookcases appears to be in Korean I might have to get Scott to bust out his tools & make me these lovelies.

I MUST own the tree bookcase. It is your new job to find out how to get one.

Ashley said...

I love both of those!

Mandi and Adam Galovan said...

Those are both adorable. How fun! Maybe someday I can have some like that.

Olivia Carter said...

Dawn- I know! I want one so bad. I PROMISE if I find one that's sold in the US to email you. If Scott's able to pull off making one then I'll also let you know!

Ashley- I know aren't they great. They SO belong in our house. We have SO MANY BOOKS

Mandi- Such fun ideas for bookcases, huh? And I'll see you tonight!

Elizabeth would be climbing those stairs in an instant!

Olivia Carter said...

Christie- I know- Rob & Syd too- it would entertain them FOREVER. Probably not great for little little babies though.

That tree bookcase is awesome! I think you might be able to find something similar to the stair bookcase at Ikea (and any of their bookcases would be a step up from WalMart plywood, even if you do have to assemble them yourself).

Olivia Carter said...

M- you are genius! I think you're right about Ikea bookcases being made into some sort of staircase bookcase.

I know you'd think with how many books we have in this house we'd have a better home for them. I think we got our bookcase for $10!
