This is what the wall looked like pre- floating book shelves. Empty and not using the potential vertical space.
After drilling screws through the floating bookshelves that i got from The Container Store, and mounting them to the wall...
I was able to chose one book for each shelf that would become the 'base' of each shelf. The back cover hooks into the bottom, and the front cover rests on top of the extending metal. Which ultimately hides the shelf itself. Brilliant!
I am so amazed at how many books i was able to put on my floating shelves! Having these books on the wall opened up other space in my room and de-cluttered my nightstand. It also is a great way to display some of my decorative handmade books.
And of course i had to add an owl to the bottom shelf! So wise!
I'm excited now to finish reading the books that i started so long ago! Resolutions here i come!
