Recently we inherited many, many books. So, I have been trying to incorporate books here and there, any where there is a vacant spot. I decided to use some of the blue books on the fireplace. I have some other colors that I used elsewhere, and I’ll share those later.
After my post about ripping covers off unwanted books (my humble apology to you authors out there) I felt I should redeem myself by showing that I really do respect and love old books. I am including a link to the cover-ripping post, but (SPOILER ALERT) if you are an author or writer, whatever you do, DO NOT click on this link. If you still want to see it, you may do so at your own risk, here.
I did find this fun metal basket for about $10 that I put some books in, for a casual look. They were placed in there, ever so gently.
These metal one-dimensional urns were also about $10 each. I actually bought one for a birthday gift, but ended up going back for two more for myself. You know… ONE for you and TWO for me. (Embarrassing but I admit it.)
I found this old wood box on eBay and it was, I believe, used to store some sort of food. But you readers are so knowledgeable, I expect someone will know exactly what it was used for.
When we use the fireplace, we do move the books out of the way, but I am enjoying them on the fireplace when it is not in use.
