Easy Tips for Sprucing up your Bookshelves

DIY | March 17, 2015

Sometimes our client’s need really simple fixes to little problems.  I thought it might be fun to show a peak into how we tackled this latest one.  Our client had shelves FULL of books. 

She didn’t want to spend money on new shelves so we decided to try our best to spruce up the basic Ikea shelves that she already had. 

The first thing we did was take ALL the books off and arrange them by color.  We broke them down into reds, whites, purples, yellows, greens, creams, grays and blues. 
On one side we took out one of the shelves to make room for a large starburst and some art from Minted.  Because there are so many books it’s a good idea to break it up with other things like art and unique accessories.  
We also hung art on the outside of the shelves to hide some of the less flattering books.  
These simple tips can take any basic bookshelf to a new level!
