Whether you're building from scratch or installing straight from the store, this is the only book you'll need to make sure your shelves, cabinets, and built-ins look professional and well integrated in your home or office. First you have to know what you want. An amazing photo gallery helps you with that decision. Then you'll find an overview of the tools, materials, and techniques you'll be using. From here, you'll go one of two ways--building them yourself or installing ready-made--and this book gives equal attention to both. Step-by-step instructions guide you through the installation process so your ready-made shelves look like they were created by a custom carpenter. For the do-it-yourself builder, there's more than enough guidance to make shelves and cabinets that could earn the praise of a master craftsman. Whichever way you choose, instructions are illustrated with color photographs and diagrams. Projects include entertainment centers and bookshelves, plus kitchen, bathroom, and utility room storage cabinets.

Some people call me a hoarder; I think of myself more a lover of books who cannot with any once they become a #possession of mine.

Work progress in my home library - a side of the room I have not really shown in the past.

Catch up day for #LilithJuly - a migraine kept me from work and from basically everything else.

KarenUK Hope you are feeling better 💕 5mo
Cinfhen Ugh, I know all about migraines 🤕Hope the meds kicked in and you‘re feeling better today 5mo
Librarybelle Thanks, @KarenUK and @Cinfhen . I‘m still not 100%, but I can definitely function today. ❤️ 5mo

Now that summer is here, I get to spend time in my office! These are my new bookshelves. And for the puzzle lovers, I have a puzzle table under the main part of my desk that pulls out. I love it!

KaraWines @VioletBramble I used to do them on the kitchen counter! That's why we built this one so that I can tuck it away. And the whole top shelf of my book shelves is puzzles. 6mo
KaraWines @QueenJen Thanks! 6mo

Hey @howjessreads, these are just the book #shelves. I have more shelves housing anything from mugs to clutter, too. ??

Also, I included one of each of my kids' shelves.

The shelf in the hallway houses books we share: dictionaries, reference books, cook books, favourite fantasy books that belong to all of us.

The large shelf next to my bed will be moved tomorrow, I want more space for yoga, so it has to move under the "cat barrier"

Nute I love this post. The description of the bookshelves invited me to enjoy your book collection with you. Thanks for sharing! 6mo
GypsyKat Love this! 6mo
SW-T Great post! Love the labels on the pictures 🙂 6mo

My sad little shelf. Most of my books are in storage. This is my little night table shelf...there are also books behind this. Some day....I will have shelves upon shelves upon shelves (promises my husband).

Thank you sweet @Rachel.Rencher for your #Rencher10K giveaway.

#31bookpics This is part of my #shelves which I‘ve recently organised. I made a feeble attempt to arrange according to some colours there but did not work out well. I won‘t be able to find my books if I arrange them totally by colours.

Kalalalatja I have a few shelves arranged by color, but mostly I keep mine in alphabetical order. It looks pretty! 👌 1y

For this #shelfieSunday , I took a picture of my dining room table. It‘s become a shelf of sorts of books I need to catalog in LibraryThing before I place them on the bookshelves in my library. I also have piles of boxes and books in my library too. Kindly ignore the magazines and wine bottles and other non-book detritus...I‘ve been a tad unorganized of late.

Spot any must reads? Points to anyone who can make out some titles!

TiredLibrarian I can't make out most of them. From what I can see, I'd call Rebecca a must-read. 😊 1y
Librarybelle @TiredLibrarian Rebecca is one of my favorites! I didn‘t have a copy, for some reason, so snagged one for my personal library 1y
wanderinglynn The Secret History of Witches is on my TBR. 1y

The shelves are DONE! Thank goodness! 😁 There is a shelf for non-fiction that didn't quite make it into the frame, but I am so happy to be out of our last apartment and into something that looks pretty.

Also, just a quick takeaway while I was loading all of my shelves... Littens are a bunch of enablers. 😂 I wouldn't have half of these books without you guys (not a bad thing! 😉) Hoping to be more active again on here soon!

Day 9 - Shelfie: One shelf of many shelves.🙃
Not much organization. Sometimes grouped by author. Sometimes grouped by book height. Usually just random placement by purchased date.

A crazy day at the bookshop — debit machine died 😳🤬 .. all I can say is TGIF! Now I just need to decide what my next read will be! These are my TBR shelves, in alphabetical order of course... decisions.. decisions.. my addiction is real! I seriously need to impose a book ban on myself!

Today at work I singlehandedly moved the entire US history, US presidents. Latin American history, true crime, and memoir sections. 165 shelves worth of books! I‘m gonna be soooo sore tomorrow! But then at the end I made this display table of memoirs, and I love how it turned out! #behindthescenesatbookmans

Dragon Great display! I especially liked the tagged book. If you think the Handmaid‘s Tale can‘t happen, just read what happens to this female professor during the revolution in Iran. 2y

#shelfie We‘ll move in 18 months so won‘t buy any new furniture. To make place for books in the existing shelves I took the big art books and built “bookshelves” of books in my daughter‘s former room. She moved out for good. A wonderful time ended abruptly... It‘s been a very long time since my heart was so broken because of an 18-year-old girl... Miss her a lot!!

batsy ❤️❤️ 2y
Anna40 It's beautiful! But sorry to hear that your little girl moved out! I think the separation of parent and 'adult' child is harder than we can imagine when they are still small! Hope you get to see her a lot! 2y

DivineDiana Clever idea with the Art Books! Sending a big hug and the hope that your daughter is not too far. 2y
Cathythoughts Very tasteful bookshelves. Oh no ! The empty nest ! I found it so hard too. 💕 2y
Izai.Amorim @DivineDiana @Cathythoughts Thanks! Daughter is in the UK until the fall. We might be able to visit in the summer. Son is still home for 2 years and then it‘ll be 100% empty nest. 2y
Gezemice This is gorgeous, but makes me want to take out one of the books and be antsy that I can‘t. I find this unsettling... Sending a hug for the empty nest, too. My 18 year old moved out in September but she is back every weekend and sometimes during the week,too, when she needs something. She can‘t quite separate yet so she is going to college in town. I must say I am happy that I see her every weekend. (edited) 2y
Izai.Amorim @Gezemice We only used books that we never read. And it‘s only for one year. We wanted to redo the room quickly because it was killing us to see that empty bedroom... Too many memories... 💔 But she‘s happy and that‘s all that matter. The worst time is behind us. 2y
Izai.Amorim @Gezemice Mine is not coming back to this apartment. 2y
Suet624 Oh gosh. I was a basket case when my kids moved out. Serious depression when the last two (twins) went to college. I feel your pain. 💕💕 2y
Izai.Amorim @Suet624 Thanks for the support! ❤️It‘s good that when we are young we don‘t think too much about how our moving out affects our parents (I never did). Or we wouldn‘t do it. They have to grow wings! 2y

I got this idea from an FB video on bullet journaling (?) *i cant find the video anymore, LOL* and tried to recreate in on my journal. So, im gonna add titles on the ‘spines‘ as i finish more books. :) I hope I remember to update this regularly, though! 😂 Good thing I can always crosscheck with GoodReads if i happen to neglect this.

Well. Turns out all my shelves are warped because of all the weight from my books. The nails in the back of the shelves are all bent and there's a big gap in the back. So I had to stuff old washcloths in the gaps so no more books will fall through 😅 #needanewbookshelf #thisonehasbeenwithme #sincefetusclaire #alsowhyarecookbookssoheavy

#30DaysofReadathon Countdown - 28: #red

I don't have an awful lot of red books, but I have a red bookcase. And yes, it's messy and the books are out of control. All our shelves are overflowing. There are stacks on the floor too. We are (hopefully) moving within a couple of months, so more shelves will have to wait.

One of my many shelves or piles of TBR books. #shelfie #riotgram

Most of the time I start reading something I got that week, so these are at risk of never being read, except for readathons or buddy reads. So, Litsy gives these books hope that they'll one day be read.

LeahBergen I'm the opposite. I usually have to put a new book on my shelf and let it live there for a while. 😄 3y
