Living Room Redo

Yesterday I decided to get to work on rearranging our living room. Jeff wasn't able to help me since he mysteriously hurt his shoulder. First I built our new bookshelf (Thank you, Marta!) and put it in its new place:
I was able to put all the books from our old bookshelves into this one. We'll still new another bookshelf to put all the new books we'll acquire. I swear we get new books all the time. Especially Tai. He comes home with boxes of books that he gets from friends. I'm glad I weeded out old books recently.
Then I got rid of our old rickety DVD rack and used one of the leftover bookshelves for our DVDs:It's much cleaner and tidier now. I still have some more improvements I want to make. I'm thinking about curtains for our sliding door. We don't use it so I think curtains will help create a 4th wall plus block out the neighbors and lower the heating bill (if we get those heavy duty ones). More on curtains later.
How was your weekend?


  1. I've pretty much decided at some point in the future we're going to have to have a library. We're always amassing books in some form or another.

    Your bookshelfs look really nice, I like the wood stain on the now DVD one a lot.

  2. Looks great! I am all for organization. Curtains sound like a great idea. You could get some thick energy saving panels.


Shiny! I love comments.
