Ryan and I have been in nesting mode for a while now, trying to make space for all the baby stuff we anticipate will be flooding the apartment. Changing our second bedroom from an office to a nursery has necessitated a lot of reorganizing. And we’re also losing a bookcase in that room, which means we’ve been culling out books that we don’t really need anymore and finding new homes for the ones that we want to keep.
Ryan’s a better organizer than I am, and he’s also pretty handy. When we first moved into our apartment he built a shelf above the sink so that we’d have more storage space. It was housing canisters that we never really used, and I woke up the other morning to see that Ryan had surprised me by transforming it into a cookbook shelf!
I’m so in love with this that I just had to show it off. It’s much more convenient to have the books in the room where I actually use them, and it looks so much better than what was there before. And just in case you’re interested in any of the books photographed above, here’s a list for you. As I said, this isn’t my entire collection, but these are some of my favorites…
