[ gotta love ikea! ]



BOOKCASES can either be utilitarian or beautiful and it's great if they can be both. Who would think that a basic bookcase from Ikea could look this good? I don't typically use such strong colours in my home but I love how this really pops. The baskets are great to hide the messy stuff and I love that the books are all organized by colour. A few carefully chosen accessories in simple white and silver break up the heaviness of it and makes a very full bookcase look orderly and chic.

I love it! I picked out that very same book case last week! We do not live anywhere near an IKEA and shipping charges are outrageous on it! So, I printed the photo and my husband is supposed to make it for me. We'll see how that goes.

IKEA rules! Their simple white bookcases and cube shelves works as perfect frames for everything you want to display.

I love Ikea, especially the instructions without words, hehe! No wonder I always end up with leftover parts.

I have the same bookcase that I use to store my vinyl records. They fit perfectly!

I have a similar bookcase in a light wood, I love how clean and sleek it is and it holds a multitude of my crafting items. :0)

I love IKEA also and my house is full of colured walls so this bookcase is one I would certainly want to have.
