This weekend I decided to go ahead and redo the bookcases in the living room. I was going to wait until after the new furniture was delivered but that probably won't be for a few more weeks. I want to apologize ahead of time for the quality of the photos. This room is at the back of the house which faces North and the wall of windows for this room has the covered deck on the other side so we don't get much light in this room. Please excuse all the shadows. This is the before picture.
I kept a few of the same items and added some from the bookcases in the sitting room. This is my no cost makeover. First I started by taking everything down except for the books. I decided to keep them the way they are.
Now the after pictures and sorry for all the shadows as I had to take these pictures at night with all the lights on.
It is not easy to decorate around electronic components. They have to be on the shelves in order to use them.
Once the room has the new furniture I will retake the pictures and hopefully they will look better.
Now onto the napkin storage. A couple of weekends ago I washed and ironed over 100 napkins and found them a new home. The bookcases in the living room has three large drawers so I used the middle drawer underneath the television to store the napkins. I thought that rolling them up instead of folding would be better and it is working so far.
Yes, all of the napkins fit. They are in layers so it doesn't look like many but trust me they are there. I was able to get three layers in here. This is the perfect spot for them since it is the same distance from the dining room and the kitchen where I use them. Now all I have left is to find the perfect home for the tablecloths.
