STYLING THE BOOKCASES

Now that the bookcases are gold, it’s time to style them! I’m not a fan of styling bookcases.  I love the finished look, but putting it together is hell!  For mine, I knew that I wanted to display my favorite and prettiest things.  AND they could be fragile because after all, this is my space and I will have a lock on the doorSmile

Here are a few snapshots of how the styling process is coming together

I knew I wanted to display my globes on top.  I started by placing a few up there to get a feel of how it would look.  Now that I see it, I’ll continue to add them.  The black magazine files were added last night just to see if I liked them.  I do so the stickers are coming off and I’m going to purchase more.  The wine decanter may seem a bit odd sitting there, but its one of my favorite thifting finds and I love looking at it.  It will stay.

The pink boxes are being used to store my bracelet supplies.  I was making bracelets the other night and looked up to see gold, black, turquoise, and hot pink material laying on my table and was instantly inspired so that’s the direction I’m headed in with the pieces I add to the bookcase.

And I can finally display my favorite jewelry pieces without little hands getting to them! I love love love that!

Ok, that’s all I have for now. The boys are headed back to school next week so we are getting things together and my bracelet business has really taken off.  I would not have thought things would be coming together like this for me.

The bookcases look great! I'm eager to see the rest of the office come together. I would have picked the same inspiration pictures as well--so pretty!
