A Case of Books

A friendly decor share for all, especially inspired by my chats with AngelicsScalliwags over there!

Claires blog was one of the very first I followed on WordPress. A blogging, homeschooler, and incredible Mother of the “AngelicSscalliwags Crew” full of book lovers. Claire has a love for the “finger to page flipping, paper-made, good ole’ book reading” experience.

Having my own TEEN, whom “Eats A Book-A-Breakfast” I can relate to the costs of housing all these books, books, books! We live in a small apartment ourselves, and the struggle to find or create space for each hardcover paperback, is endless!

The highly unique bookcases come in regular sized dark wenge wood….

Or smaller, the MINI Bookcase, size I’d use for the children’s space. The MINI would be a perfect fit in a little nook area or reading spot for kids!

I really favor these one of a kind decor items. A worthy buy as well, as the designers at
Cold And Old actually ‘plant one tree for each item sold’! To me, that’s an added personal touch. As well, a great reminder for you when you look at your new piece of wood decor. A beauty giving you the opportunity to pay back the environment for, in such a special way! I am confident angelicsscalliwags could even turn the items, into a brilliant homeschooling lesson for children ;)

Unique custom made bookcases by, Augusta and Gustav over on Etsy.

Item Description:

The darker colored ‘Wenge wood’ material of the above custom made bookcases contain ‘pins’. The detachable ‘pins’ hold the books resting on small wooden plates. These multi-functioning wooden plates keep the quality of the pages intact and are adjustable. (*purchase details) Placed at the bottom of the book, they allow each book to be moved in arrangement. ‘Pins’ dually act as ‘bookmarks’ being perfect for keeping your page saved and are an appeasing book storage unit on display. Have fun and express your own unique decor style.

The other way to approach these items is to use as your own inspiration for re-creation. I see a frugal, re-create-able, unique, book storage inspiration. There is potential throughout a fabulous (lol at self, ok, a second-hand-looking) DIY project; an opportunity for the entire family to partake! Right!?

AND…* Night Stand my favorite *

All designed pieces are handcrafted and created by owners Agusta and Gustav of the Old And Cold one of a kind studios. The Night Stand versions above, contains a slighter depth in shelf, showing its versatility as a functioning piece of minimalist decor. As you can see, each item is hanging on a string material. Strings are made from a waxed cotton and available in options of beige, dark brown, and red tones; also part of your choice custom ordering. *I could use a couple in each room honestly.

Personally, my LO who’s 4+ and I have been working together sanding, prepping, and fixing with tools, a dresser re-finishing project we’ll share once complete. It’s an in-interrupted, quality, bonding and learning experience for us BOTH ;)

Can you have special DIY projects to do with wee-ones help? Do you have a ‘DIY bookcase’ to share? Have you created DIYs with your fam? Are you inspired to do a project like this now?
Share in the Comments or re-blog your story from this post! A chance for you to boast of your successes with DIY… or fails LOL! You know we all love a good laugh, or happy story!

Dear Readers About Claire, at angelicsscalliwags

Especially to, Mom’s, parents, and caregivers alike. Make your play learning and regular days with the kids less stressful and more fun! You don’t want to miss this blog. Mrs.Claire is an incredibly loving, humble, dedicated, and homeschooling Mother. There are simple learning lessons from her teachings, that she goes into great details about sharing with us on her blog at, AngelicsScalliwags here on WordPress. The instructions, challenges, and lessons are much easier to follow (for a “bear of very little brain”–like Pooh Bear and I) than most of the hardcore books-using homeschooling plans I’ve tried! <<–I read them all! I just have a unique set of circumstances with my LO's learning.

Personal Experience:
Since reading Mrs.Claire’s Blog, I now am able to design my own lessons to implement while just “playing” and being, with my own children. My LO is “developmentally delayed”. I tweak a little something here and there, from Claires Homeschooling Lessons, and VOILA! I’m practising homeschooling lessons in play!Who Knew! AngelicsScalliwags expressions are lovely, photos are fantastic, and learning is definitely wholesome at their house. Subscribe, follow, read, today.

  1. Thank you so much for the vote of confidence, you made my day!
    And I LOVE the shelves, so simple and I’m guessing fairly easy to home make, although I’m certain mine wouldn’t look nearly so professional. Very cool though!

    • LOL! I just couldn’t help but share these things with you. Theyre available to buy on Etsy.com which is my next favvvorite community–but, my thought was you recreating something LIKE it for storing your books!

      Plus, its some wonderful exposure for those in need of some good wholesome homeschooling help and, of course some appreciation for YOU ;)

      I have another link I wanted to how u of another cool idea: a little more rustic per-say lol–http://www.etsy.com/listing/109270246/iron-book-shelf?ref=cat_gallery_4
