Thursday’s Child Tries To Decorate A Bookcase
Hi, I hope you are having an awesome day. I want to share with you what my bookcase looks like.
I love bookcases. The perfect spot to make a statement and have some fun. I have also includes some tips on how I decorate my bookcase.
This bookcase is the one in my master bedroom. I have several throughout the house, and each is a little different. This one is more me because I am the main person who looks at it every day.
Thursday’s Child Love’s a nice looking bookcase.
My ideas of a nice looking bookcase I am sure is different from others. Let me explain what I like in a bookcase.
First it’s your bookcase and it should reflect that. So if you like Archie and hate that leather bond first edition copy of War and Peace what the heck sell it on Craigslist and buy a new comic or two.
So now that you scored that Archie comic you wanted, and its setting on a shelve looking oh so perfect let’s fill in the empty space.
Let’s start with a few pictures of your most beloved family members. You say you don’t have any family you want to display, well just download a fake family from the Internet. Remember, if you do this you don’t want to be the ugly one. If your real family comes over just tell them its friends.
A small sample of things you like to collect is sure to personally that bookcase. I like to collect Jack-in-the-box. So I have one shelve with Jack on it.
I also love the look of vintage books. Vintage books are a steal at almost any estate sale. If the price is to high the first day wait and go back on the last day of the sale after one and you can get them for almost free. People don’t want to have to deal with the books that didn’t sell.
I always try to group the books. I would never but the book titled That Affair Next Door with a stack of Christian books.
Color grouping is a personal choice. Some people group by one color with can have a dramatic effect, while other people mix everything together. I personal group darks together then I group similar subjects together. This can be trickle if it’s a new bookcase and you don’t have enough books.
I also like to add a small amount of trinkets that again reflect thinks I love to look at.
The most important thing is when you are done you should be able to stand back and say awe.
