Decorating With Books

When you finish reading a book, do you cram it on a shelf? Loan it to a friend? Give to the library or a shelter? Or do you decorate with books?

Yes, I have some shelves cramed with good books.

One of the problems of moving to a smaller house is the need to find creative ways to display your books.

On this table, one of the pictures got lost behind the others until I elevated it with books.

I also used books on the lower shelf of this table to bring emphasis to a pretty shell.

I also displayed a couple of gifts from my grandmothers by my books. I’m sentimental about these shelves.

My style won’t make a magazine layout, but it makes me happy.

I’d love to hear how you display your books!
