Bookshelf Envy

I've been dreaming about bookshelves lately. There are just so many creative ways to display your books! Check out some of these practical and inspirational bookshelves:

Arrange your books by color:


Create a book case out of salvaged drawers:


Paint your bookshelf:


Decorate your books:


Create shelf out of books:


Organize with lots of fun baskets and boxes:


Go round:


Wallpaper your bookshelf:


 I think I like the wallpaper idea best :) Which one's your favorite?

  1. I love the idea of reusing drawers as a bookshelf. So resourceful! :)

  2. I love a well curated book shelf, full of vingettes and pretty books. Oh so dreamy. My neighbor just put in a library in the back of his house I pretty much decorate it in my head all the time.

  3. I've always wanted a full wall book shelf. The books in my house are not mine (they belong to the mister) but I do appreciate the look/feel of books immensely!

  6. I never thought about color before. I always organize by height or alphabetically.

  7. I love the wallpaper + painted ones!!
    The color coded ones are really pretty, but I just think I wouldn't be able to find the book I was looking for as fast if it was in alphabetical order. But it is very pretty to look at!

  8. I've actually been working on a project putting wallpaper to upgrade my (very old hand-me-down) bookshelves!!! Its a long process (because college takes up most of my time) but I'll be sure to notify you when I do! :D
