Shelving Saturday - #8

Welcome to Shelving Saturday

Shelving Saturday is a weekly blog event I have started here at Eastern Sunset Reads.   Each week I will post a shelving dilemma or question and you can join me in the response.
Please feel free to post on your blog and link back here, please be sure to post the link to your response in the comments so I can come and check your Shelving day out!

So the past several weeks we have been talking about how we like to put our books on the shelves but I haven't asked any of you about your actual shelves. So this weeks question is what do you use for book shelves? Did you make them yourself? Did you buy them? Where did you get them?
I myself for years growing up had bookshelves my dad made, every time me and my mom ran out of room he would build us another. So when I moved out and actually finally had room to get my books out of storage I couldn't believe how hard it was to find good quality bookshelves at a reasonable price! I finally found some and had to beg the hubby for them for my birthday several years ago.
I got these lovely shelves from Staples.
Aren't they beautiful?! I love how very classic library they look! I have 2 sets of those right now and they are stuffed to overflowing.  I am actually thinking of getting one of the smaller 3 shelf ones to put under the window in my library room.
So how about you? What are your bookshelves like?


  1. Good quality bookshelves are hard to find! I buy these horribly cheap ones from Shopko and put them together myself. I can't afford beautiful ones like yours. :(

  2. Yours look a lot nicer than mine! My shelves are the cheap basic bookshelves (from Walmart) about the same size as yours. I wish they had one more shelf available, but that's what I get for going with the lower priced ones.

  3. Good quality shelves are super hard to find. I am lucky to have gotten these but I am sure I probably would have done what either of you did and just gone to walmart or target and picked up one of their shelves (I kind of like those closet organizers with different sized spaces they have at target).
