So I don't know if some of you know (I've mentioned this before in the last couple months), but my family and have been moving into our new home!
My little brother and I started about a month ago. It was a slow process...
My parents have been building our home for the past FIVE years!! For the past five years we've been living in a pretty small home, where we each had our own bedroom (THANK GOD!!), but only ONE bathroom!!
Yes, one bathroom for FOUR people!!! It was insane in the mornings!!
Anyway, we now officially have each our own bathroom!!! :) YAY!!
My dad put up my last shelf today!! :)
I always knew I had an insane amount of books, but didn't truly realize how bad it was, until I started moving them to all my new room...it took about 6 trips!! (luckily, our new house is in the back yard, so I just had to use a wagon, or dolly to cart them all over in boxes!) But still!! 6 trips!!
In my old bedroom, my bookshelves consisted of two shelves, which were wide enough to stack books back to back, so each shelf had two rows of books, one row in front, and one behind the front one. It was a bit annoying because I couldn't get to some of my favorites, and I hated covering them up! But there just wasn't enough room!
Anyway, my dad built me some gorgeous shelves...the one problem is that I need a ladder to get to my books! It took me forever to figure out the organization system!! But I THINK I finally figured it out!!
So before I share the pictures of my new shelves now, let me show you the BEFORE picture, of how my new room looked after I had put all my books on my carpet...
Anyway, I was able to spray paint one of the bookshelves and am now using it as my shelf of books I have NOT read...
Now to my finished shelves!!!
These are the three shelves over my desk! That whole wall, below the shelves, are also book related!! I've got my framed Passion and Prose signatures, in a collage. Then my Meg Cabot signatures (two frames dedicated to those!), my Simone Elkeles letter and signature is on that wall too! :)
The top shelf is all my childhood books, including my Chicken Soup collection, Nancy Drew books, the classics I have (both ones I read for high school English classes), and ones I've read for fun! And books I've received from Indie authors as requests to read, and have read and reviewed! :)
The second shelf includes my Pretty Little Liars Series, The Lying Game Series, The Hunger Games, and other YA books!
And the bottom shelf, includes all my favorites that I wouldn't mind rereading one day! Those include all my Meg Cabot books, Simone Elkeles, Emily Giffin, Nicholas Sparks, and others! :)
|I LOVE Purple!! <3|
Harry Potter, Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices, and my extensive Twilight collection! :)
So that's my new room...I just really wanted to share it with all of you! I swear I don't mean to be bragging, I'm just so excited to finally be spending my nights in it!! :)
Hope everyone has a great week! :)
