With books 2.0
First, I'm going to start on the bottom shelf. I added a vintage tool caddy. This is perfect to hold pillows or blankets.
Next, I added a thrifted laundry basket to the very top shelf. I like to add the biggest items first, and then fill in from there.
Now, I'm adding all the books. I like to have some spines show and some have only the pages show. I stack some and line up the others to give some variation.
This side of the built-ins, I use faux greenery. I've added olive stems up top, faux maiden hair, a bowl full of greens and a faux fern in a bust.
I added a pair of vintage brass ducks as accessories on top of the stacked books.
I added a few pieces of artwork to the shelves. I love the vintage portrait. The other 2 are modern purchases.
I added a couple pillows to the tool caddy on the bottom. And that completes this side of the shelves!
