Our library


Our library is a work in progress, but at least we've made some progress! In our apartment, we kept the books in our bedroom, along with the piano and some kitchen storage. It's so nice to spread out into our new house!

In our house, the master bedroom is on the main floor and all the rest of the bedrooms are upstairs. We opted to sleep upstairs until our child(ren) are grown, so the master bedroom is now the library / guest room. (Hence the classy unmade bed messing up the view of the important stuff.)

I love books. I'm really excited that we finally don't have to separate, store, and double-stack them. They're all out there where I can see them. Bliss!

  2. I know what you mean about books! I love 'em. In our home, we took a bedroom and put up shelves on all but one wall, and there I put the computer desk. Now, to be honest, I'd much rather have a piano like you!

    My Show N Tell is shared. Hope you can drop by for a few minutes' visit today.

  3. Yes my hubby likes to put the library inside our bedroom its already there before we got married. The piano is in the front room. My son even it is young he likes to use so its better not with the books. I like yours...

  9. That place seems to be perfect for a library indeed! And I saw your little son standing at the piano!

    Happy reading and have a wonderful week-end!

    Best wishes from Germany, Anita

  11. I love that you have them in a room with a door on it. If your son is anything like mine, pulling down books and attempting to color/rip/de-cover is a favorite activity. Most of ours are sadly stacked out of his reach, where they look terrible and are hard to find.

    Your new home is definitely coming along!
