I have been reading The Lazy Organizer's blog for about a year, so I am excited to do my first TAT post. This week is supposed to be a home tour. Well, we live in an apartment and the place itself isn't that exciting, but I thought I'd tell you about our cool new bookshelf!
When we moved into our new apartment, we realized we needed another bookshelf. With our decision to homeschool has come the never ending acquisition of more books. We have learned with all of our moving that cheap bookshelves just don't last very long. We were hoping to find an awesome real wood bookshelf at a thrift store, but after a couple of weeks of nothing turning up my husband finally decided to build a bookshelf! This is something he has never done before, and I think it turned out great!
At first he was going to just nail the boards together, but then he decided to get a little more creative - that's his nature. So he got out a pocket knife and made the edges all wavy, and now it has more character!
Here is the bookshelf all loaded with the books - it mostly has adult and children's classics on it - but also all of the other kids books. I also put our education books on there, and pretty much anything that we feel is important for the learning environment in our home. We have another bookshelf that has all of our church related books on it. And then in our room we have our old cheap bookshelves with the less important books. We still have some room for more classics on our new bookshelf, but I told my husband he's probably going to have to build a couple of more bookshelves at some point!
