Here’s a picture of the bookcase filled. There are 7 shelves.
One is the Harry Potter shelf, one is the Bob Dylan shelf, one is classics I don’t want to part with quite yet( Farmer Boy, Alan Watts, Gary Snyder) the rest are cookbooks and my simple living/decluttering books. I tried to get all my cookbooks here but there’s still about one shelf’s worth of cookbooks on the other bookcase. I could move the Dylan books and try fitting them there. I guess I’ll see.
I am happy with how bright and clean it looks and am looking forward to doing more. I also did the french door on the one side. I’ll do the other side later this week.
I only found one book to get rid of otherwise all these are useful and I do re-read many of them.( I’ve read the Historian at least 6 times!!!). This is all the books except for the collection of Easton press which is admittedly quite a few. That bookcase is a teak wood so I wouldn’t paint that.
I’ll show that again when we paint the front room.

Looks great. I love browsing bookshelves and wish I could take a few off to read the blurb.
That is a neat little bookcase tucked into that space. Like Lucinda I like having a browse and wish I could have a read.
Our house is so small under 900 sq feet that anywhere we could tuck something we did. 🙂
I have a horrible time parting with books. I do read them over and over. Nothing better than a fresh bookcase to keep them in!
I really only keep the real”keepers”. Plus I go thru them periodically to see what I no longer need/want.
“show your bookshelf and I will know who you are”
I will show my other books soon.
