These pictures are a few months old, but I figure it's high time I make an organizational post considering this is supposed to be an organizational blog. A few months ago, my living room was annoying me, severely. Nothing was organized, there were toys every where, and it just looked messy. Even when it was clean it looked messy. I decided to start with the bookshelves. I've made quite a few updates since then, and every day I am surprised by how much just having my bookshelves organized neatly has made a difference in how clean the living room looks. That, and putting all of Monster's toys back in his room where they belong. We just don't have enough space to let toys roam free.
Anyway... Here is the before & after of my bookshelves. Sadly, the before is after I thought, "Ooo, I should take a picture and make a post about this!" So, you're out of luck there.
As you can see, all I did was take the books off the shelves, line the shelves up, and make a rainbow effect with the book spines. We have two sets of bookshelves. The start of the rainbow is on the other side, not shown.
Really, this is such a simple, easy process, but it helped SO much. 10/10 would do again.
