Beautiful Sunday # 11 - On the look for the best book shelf

A few days ago, my former student turned Twitter friend, showed me this

I believe my overflowing book shelf,

which I posted on Instagram, prompted her to share the unique bed. She later gave me an idea of what to post for my 11th Beautiful Sunday.

The books you see only represent a segment of my humbled and treasured book collection. My other books at home are found on my old working table, in the hidden compartment of my bed, the spare drawers in my cabinet and to spaces everywhere at home. My disorganized collection often irritates and causes some minor arguments with my Nanay (mom) :D Facing a dilemma of where to house my growing book collections, I found myself googling for unique shelves. Though budget dictates that this is not the right time to purchase a new shelf, my imagination fortunately doesn't restrict me to wish for any of these unique shelves.

Not really made of wood but metals shaped to a branch of a tree. I like the fact that the design combined simplicity and creativity.

Another showcase of creativity! The shelf requires a huge space but the wooded panels inside will surely create additional means to accommodate more books

I seriously want something like this!

The space under the staircase remains as one of the most idle points in any home. Converting the space to a book shelf is one of the many ways we could maximize this often underutilized space.

A DIY shelf

Wood and wine bottles? Why not? They make a great book shelf too. In like manner that a table, a book and a glass of wine creates a relaxing environment for some.

Another DIY shelf which makes your books as decorative pieces too

A circular and revolving book shelf, I like!

The tall circular shelf is very space saving and can work for lazy readers like me.

Another version of a revolving shelf,

with hidden compartments to accommodate a great number of collections.

How would you like to have this?

But my ultimate dream is this
source
My own library equipped with unlimited number of books, wooden shelves, wooden floor, comfy couch and a window that provides a great view from the outside.

  1. Oh my gosh, these bookshelves make my heart swoon. :) I dream of having a room with a whole, huge wall with floor to ceiling shelves. Oh, yes ... and with a rolling ladder too. Maybe someday...

  5. I love that bookshelf under the staircase. Coincidentally, I was thinking about shelves last night. I told my husband I wanted an office den when we have our own house. Of course this staircase shelf space would be for the additional books. :)
