I'm already changing things up on the family room desk.
It's crazy, I know but I found the perfect desk addition that has me very excited.
I found this fun book display shelf at the thrift store on Friday and couldn't wait to add it into the mix on the desk.
It started out looking like this . . .
After a very quick, and light coat of paint, which I dry brushed on, this little cutie was ready to be used within a half hour.
I think it adds a nice touch to the desk area.
Plus, for me it brings back memories.
When I was a kid, mom would take me to the library which was held in this fantastic old stone building. Think stone steps, glass and oak doors, wood floors and the smell of books - - I loved that place. In the reference section space was limited so you would find tiny shelves like this one on all the research tables. The librarian's would rotate the books on them with different subject matters. I remember how I would always hurry through my book picking in order to leave time to go through the books on the tables while I waited for my mom to make her selections.
Did your childhood library use them also?
