We are lover’s of books, hubby and I. It is the one thing that we find irresistable, easy to acquire and hard to give away. As such, we have more books and magazines than we do storage space. As much of our reading is done in bed, there are piles of books on both of our night stands, and hubby in particular always has a large stack right beside the bed, where his feet should land each morning. So far, no person or book has been harmed by an accidental morning slip, but it’s one of those things that seem inevitable – magazines are very slippery on hardwood floors!
So, when I saw this bedroom book organizer in One Yard Wonders it seemed the perfect thing for us, AND a perfect use for some of Gran’s fabric. This pale green matches both our winter duvet (made by me) and our summer quilt (made and hand-quilted by Gran herself!). It nicely fits a couple of books and magazines, and once I get some anti-slip stuff sewn on, hopefully that will be the end of the pile of magazines and books on the floor (the pile has reappeared since I made this and put these books in….I am hoping it’s just because at the moment it still sometimes slips out from between the mattresses at night?)
