Bookcase Makeover

I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who have recently told me that you read my blog... it's nice to know someone is! Not that I'm trying to make it big-time or anything, but it's just nice knowing someone somewhere reads the stuff I put on here.

Now, the good stuff.

So. Eric and I have lived in our house just about a year now. Which is crazy. I feel like it has taken us a whole year to actually make our house look relatively good, BUT there are about a million things that we still want to do. Which leads me to the bookcase.

This is the first thing that I have re-done. I decorated it once when we moved in and last week I decided I needed to re-do it. Why? Well, I just threw some crap up there when I started... and that's what it looked like. Plus, I had been looking at some pictures of bookcases via Pinterest, and let's just say all the fancy-pants decorators bookcases didn't look anything like mine.

Here is what it looked like the first time I arranged things:

Totally fine. Ok. But it just didn't make me happy. After reading this article by one of my favorite bloggers, I decided to restyle. Here is what it looks like now:

Some of my favorite little vignettes:

One last before and after:

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
