Decorating with books

Bookminded

The three tall bookcases in my living room were custom made by a local carpenter to fit the space and as such, they look like built-ins. The total cost for this project was less than $600 (he painted them too!), which ended up being less expensive than comparably sized bookcases from IKEA. Definitely a good investment!
