The Library: Details

Just a few detail shot of the center bookshelf. The books are organized by topic, then arranged how they look best. My favorite are the birds. I thought they deserved a shelf all their own.

The birds are my absolute favorite as well!
Btw, are those ikea billy book shelves without the backing?

I have two of them in birch colour and I'm thinking of repainting them white. Do you have any experience in that?

they actually custom built-ins.

i have not re-painted billy bookcases, though know it's kind of a pain. if you have the time and patience i guess it would be fine, but for the cost of getting white ones (either new or thru craisglist) it's probably not worth the trouble...

Thanks Laura!
I agree, could probably use craig's like to get rid of my old ones :)
