I really love creative thinking. You know, looking at something and thinking ‘what can I do to make that better?’ or ‘how can that be changed so it’s more me?’ In connection (I promise, it is connected), I love bookshelves. One can never have too many bookshelves. In our house, we’ve never had enough book shelves for the amount of books we have to put on them. So that’s when we did some innovative thinking, and turned our un-used fireplace into a small bookshelf.
It was so super easy to do as well! We just grabbed some bricks we had out in the garden, wiped them off a bit, got some wood and hey presto! Yes, a little jiggling and making sure everything was sturdy was in order, but it didn’t take long. Now we have an extra little bookcase in our study, and it looks cool too.
