Well, my library is a thing of the past. It looks so sad now. It used to be so colourful and now it's just bare ugly walls. Brent plans on ripping up that horrid ORANGE carpet and putting down laminate floors; also painting the wainscotting and the walls - so eventually it will look much better.
The good news is I have enough shelves that he didn't have to pack any away. They are doubled up and stacked and everything, but it's better than putting them in a dark box - where they would be lonely.......and cold.
I couldn't get a picture of what else he did because it's too dark in that part of the room, but he stacked the half bookshelves and has them facing each other - just like in a real library. But since it is dark in that room - and no outlets to plug a lamp in, it's going to be tricky if I have the overwhelming urge to read a book in that area.
Boy - I can take bad pictures can't I? In the second batch, I figured out that there was a button on the camera for shaking hands and they turned out much better. It's those small electronic devices I tell you!
