Built in Bookshelves

I spend too much time daydreaming about my forever home. And while the layout of the kitchen or the floor plan is up in the air, one thing that never changes is my desire for a library. And I’ve imagined a million different ways for this library to look, including just splitting a regular room in half to be part office, part library. Anything to make it work.

And in my time daydreaming, I have come across a lot of beautiful libraries on Pinterest and Facebook and the like. And I have now stumbled across this article on Book Riot about building your own built-in bookshelves. So, I thought I would share it here in case any of you share my love of displaying books. But to tell the whole truth, I’m sharing it here so I know where to look when it comes time to actually build my own bookshelves in the future.

Built-in bookshelves are my weakness. While I love uniquely refurbished bookcases, creative ways to house books, and cute shelves for small spaces, what I really dream about are custom built-in bookshelves that span the entire wall.
