So… I had another bookshelf tour post that I already wrote up and arranged my pictures in the way I wanted them and then my parents took me to Wal-Mart about a week later! In my perspective, not much has changed from the first format except for a few things but it’s not anything too drastic like placing my bookshelf on the other side of my room!
If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen me ranting about a section of my bedroom and I personally want to apologize for the fact that I talk about this area a lot. As a disabled person, if you use quite a bit of stuff on a daily or weekly basis, you want those certain things kind of close to you. This is has become a problem of mine lately. A lot of stuff I had in this area of my room are for my blog, so I have my props that are very large. I also have my everyday items like books, CDs, and notebooks that collect a lot of space if they are stacked on top of each other! I was always reorganizing and cleaning that part of my room to the point where I was literally exhausting myself!
I want to say about two months ago, I started to talk to my nana about the fact that my mom and I were considering on buying a bookshelf just so the whole thing would be a little easier to control. She kind of threw out that she had a small shelf that I could have instead. It was right behind my papaw’s chair in the living room. It was full of different books. So while my Aunt Laurie and Uncle Mike were down in mid-August, we decided to clean it out. The books inside the shelf were pretty interesting, I’ll discuss those in a post sometime!
To start this bookshelf tour, I should probably tell you that I have all of my blogging equipment on the right side of the shelf. I have a clipboard that my nana gave me that I only use for coloring! And then you have my foam board, regular cardboard and backdrop that my dad was nice enough to build for me!
All right, starting from the bottom to top and left to right sides we have my stack of DVDs, this was a change from the previous post I had, they were in the second story, but the reason why I put them here was because I don’t normally watch them on a weekly or even monthly basis so I knew they would be a nuance so I removed them and put them next to my large white cigar box that my dad bought for me! I have a slight problem with boxes apparently! That’s another post that’s coming soon! On top of that is my paperback version of Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, I’ve already finished it and felt this was a good place for it now!
The second story is the one with the most changes. When I went to Wal-Mart, I went and bought two more books! Oh lordy bee!
On the left though, we have my cousin’s hardback edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, that unfortunately I cannot finish at this time. It is my favorite film of the series and the one I’ve seen the most. I kept comparing the two and realized I wasn’t interested in reading it anymore. Now above it is the hardback edition Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard, which is book two of the Red Queen series. In the middle are my newest books: Me Before You by JoJo Moyes and The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins. Right behind them are half of my CDs that still have cases attached to them. On the corner of the right side is another cigar box, this is full of my papaw’s rocks aka “The Treasure Box” and on top of it are more CDs that wouldn’t stack up for me! Lastly, I have a cute, chicken recipe box that I use to store my iPod when it’s charging!
Third shelf is less chaotic! Well, I think it is at least… At the bottom I have a small notepad with two of my pens that write smoothly! Behind it is yet another cigar box, this one is my most recent box. This has cards and envelopes in it since it’s fairly small! Next to it is a Velveeta box that has my remotes, a neon bandana, etc. On the right side is a stack of notebooks, medium size notepad, folder, magazines, and my World Atlas book. I also decided to store both of my iPod, camera, and tripod at this level too!
At the very top, I wanted to make this section very relaxed and cute, since everybody would be able to see it more than the whole bookshelf put together! I have a beautiful bouquet of autumnal flowers and my headphones are directly behind them. I have a small Easter bunny, her name is “Nilla” because she used to smell like vanilla when I first got her! You see my purse up there but I tend to keep it on the floor, I was just tidying up the bottom area and forgot to put it back on the floor when my mom took the picture! I also have a cute, skull bucket that my nana got for me! You can see sweets are in there, but underneath them are my colored pencils and sharper are stored inside of it.
I think that covers everything! I realized after I got everything stuffed inside the shelf that some people have five or six gigantic book shelves to store their books! I quickly backed out of ever wanting more than just those two in my life!
What do you think about my bookshelf and everything I stuffed inside of it?
