Shelfie

Did you know bookshelves say a lot about a person? Take the bookshelf test here and then share your shelfie with me! I am a bit OCD with my Ikea expedit shelves; I need them to be their aesthetic self but at the same time, I need them to be functional and hold as much junk as possible. Here are my tips!

ONE: Collect a bunch of boxes and magazine holders to store the unattractive bits. You can also buy very cheap binders and decorate them like I have done here a la Kate Spade.

TWO: Hold onto those champagne bottles, glass candles and jars and fill them with fresh, dead or fake flowers.

THREE: Display your favourite accessories that you never seem to get to use. For me, these are my quirky clutches and my cat flats which have died a bit.

FOUR: Let it go. Its basically impossible for your shelf to resemble a Pinterest shelf so don’t worry too much. Have fun, switch it out regularly and inject as much personality into your bookcase as possible. Magazines, gift bags, candles, travel memorabilia and picture frames are all great space fillers. Try stacking stuff sideways and if all else fails, shove it in a storage bin and try again tomorrow!

  1. I love the contents of your bookshelves and I love the IKEA expedit shelves too. I have the 16 cube one. (I’m about to dismantle it now lol). I’m loving the cat flats too.
    I just took the bookshelf test and my result = Comforting. “You collect books because you love to read. It’s hard for you to pass up a book by your favorite author. Once you find a writer you love, you tend to read his or her whole catalog. You love books for what’s in them, and you don’t get too caught up in the apperances of your collection.” 🙂
