I CAN afford some DIY shelves! bam bam bam. $40 @ HD and 35 minutes with a tape measure, level and screw gun and new room!
And it still looks cluttered.
I swear books spore & multiply when they're alone. You'd think that increasing the shelf space by 65% would thin them out but they're still packed.
If there are any suggestions out in blog-world on how I can tailor the wall w/o spending mucho dinero or losing all the books, I'm all ears (eyes).
But, that is a project for another day. I'm off to the zoo!
