Bookshelf Refresh 2019

I would love to say that I organize my favorite bookshelf more than once a year, but then I’d be a filthy, rotten liar. My dad actually built me this shelf for my birthday several years ago. It’s oak and the fact he made it, makes me love it a thousand times more. This is where I keep the books deem my favorites that I require to be in my personal library. However, as the years go by, favorites change and thus room has to be made for the new favorites that get stacked in front until I feel the need to rearrange hit me.

I hope to build my very own bookshelf this year when it gets warm again. If I can make a satisfactory bookshelf with my own hands. watch out world! I’ll be making some for every room in my house and every book worm I know!


How often do you rearrange your shelves? What’s the method to your madness?

  1. I’ve been lazy about organizing my library, but it would be a full time job and I just don’t have time. I was seriously thinking about paying a student over the summer to help me! Lol.

    1. Do it! I threatened to arrange my little cousin’s books for him because they were thrown all over his closet. He finally did it himself. I felt relief at HIS shelves being organized, it was ridiculous lol.

  2. I rearrange my shelves every time I get new books and I need to make room for them. Iā€™m very boring and opt for alphabetical order. Iā€™d like to do something a bit more interesting one day.

  3. Unfortunately only when I do a big clean up. I need to do another book full, which is always incredibly difficult, but buying more means less space, and having them in stacks on the floor ain’t a great look…

    1. I think I have about 40-50 ebooks as well. It definitely helps with space management. If we ever buy another house, I need a room I can turn into a library. My husband gets half of the basement for his man cave, with is video games and their systems, along with instruments.

  4. Aw love it! Dad did an awesome job šŸ™‚

    My partner built a bookshelf for my birthday a couple of years ago and I am absolutely in love with it as well. Best present ever!
    He is quite handy & loves building furniture as a hobby, so most things in our house were made by him.

  5. I can’t wait to see you bust out some homemade bookshelves! šŸ˜€ That would be so awesome. It’s like having a hobby to further enable you in your other hobby. That’s pretty damn brilliant if you ask me! šŸ˜‰

  6. Looks good! šŸ™‚

    I don’t think i’ve touched my shelves for at least a year. I did get new shelves and just shoved the books on them, but i don’t think i’ll rearrange them much.
