Our friend Jeff has recently been bugging me about our living room. Every time he comes over he complains that he doesn't like the way it's set up. I'm not too crazy about it either so I listen to his suggestions. His biggest gripe is our bookshelves. He thinks they are too small and we are wasting space. I agree. I think we need to go taller but I can't find bookshelves I like. The two I have are 3 shelves each and at maximum capacity. So we need at least 5 shelves each so we have some room to grow.
So I decided to look for some bookshelves so I can see what's out there. I only found these 2 Ikea bookshelves:
Ikea Bookshelves
Ikea Bookshelves by honeylin
I'm trying to stay under $200 each plus I only like certain color. I like a medium wood tone not super light not super dark. I'm so picky. I'll enlist Jeff's help on this project. Especially since he complains about it.


  1. Have you looked at Overstock.com? We got our headboard from there so they have some different wood furniture.

    But I hear ya about being picky about different color of wood. I hate really light pine it just feel unfinished to me.

  2. I really like the lighter enclosed one on the left.


Shiny! I love comments.
