Progress!!!

I am so happy --- we finally have gotten new bookshelves in our library at home.   My husband (the best husband ever), agreed to go to IKEA and figure out how we could re-do our library room, considering we were using old folding bookcases I had had for 10+ years (and yes, some of the shelves were bowing slightly).    And, books were stacked on the floor, the room was a mess.....  

But, he did the math and figured out just how we could go around the room with tall bookcases, and little by little, we've been getting bookcases, putting them together, and making it all work.  I finally got all the books put away and organized yesterday (of course, I need to organize them -- I'm a Librarian!!).   So, because I'm just so happy, I'm posting a picture of one of the corners.   Still need to put chairs back in the room, and rearrange a few things, but it's so so so much better than it was!!!

Thanks! :) It's definitely been worth the wait (I've been asking about replacing the shelves for about 2 years now....). All I need to do now is put the chairs back in and I'm ready to read....

Nice! Getting the shelves to fit in the corner just right is a pain in the ass. I know. I have to say we have simular taste in books. I dig the red walls. :)
