So I’m not going to lie. I go on tumblr all the time and see beautifully organised bookshelves that make me cream just a little bit. What is this life? Why can’t I have that too? Oh yeah, because I’m a disorganised mess…
But all that’s about to change. See, I’m going on a journey to achieve beautiful bookshelves. To make my dream come true. And it all starts here.
I have come to understand in my life, that the first step is to admit that you have a problem. And people… I have a problem.
See, it’s not so much a mess as it is the embodiment of chaos. And I frankly don’t even know where to start. But taking all the books off the shelves and rearranging everything seems like a good place to graduate from.
Why am I doing this? Because I’m greedy. I want a book shrine. I’m sick of people refusing to buy me books on the assumption that they get lost in the void of my horrible shelving system.
This is my plan so far:
1. Clear off my shelves.
2. Relocate shelves to a better spot.
3. Reorganise books onto shelves in a variety of ways.
4. Decorate shelves.
I shall measure my success by how good the shelf look after the project and by how little alcohol was required to get me through. Anything under Four bottles of gin is a good amount.
Show me pictures of your bookshelves, good or bad! I want to see them! And if anyone wants to join me on my journey to revolutionise their shelves, get tips and ideas and trade secrets, then let me know and we can all share the journey!
