Creative Book Shelves

I have a family of book-lovers so it’s no surprise that we’ve amassed way too many books, more than our little condo can hold.

So I’m trying to find creative ways on how to OCfy and display our books.  Hmmmm which one should I choose?

 

I can use wire baskets.  This could probably work well too with any sturdy basket.

 

How about this modern-looking book shelf?

 

I could go all out and have one built in a particular shape. 

 

How about this one? Literal floating bookshelves!

 

Or I can just keep them stored neatly with one of my favorite organizing objects —- the magazine file!

 

Do you have other book organizing ideas? Send me a message here or on my Facebook Page at OCfied.

DIY RIBBON DISPENSER

How many times have you wound up errant ribbons, only to have them tangle up with each other all over again? There is a way to get over that tornado of ribbons lying in a drawer or box in your home.
My solution… create a ribbon dispenser!
 
1. Look for a basket full of holes.
 
 

 

 

 
 
2. Fix the ribbons inside the basket and keep them aligned and upright by pulling a stick or straw through them.
