Wish List

This is just a random post about pretty things. Oh, look, that seems to be the theme of my blog. What a coincidence. Later this summer, we're planning on doing up the gameroom righty-tighty. I'll finally get some built-ins! (Something I've been talking about forever.) So, here's some pictures that I've been looking at to inspire me.

I have two windows that I would love to frame out with shelves. In fact, I would love to have shelves and cabinetry on every wall in the gameroom. Then, I would have a place for all of my Meg Cabot books.

I love built-ins on either side of fireplaces. But, I have windows on either side. Oh, well. I'll just settle for silk drapes.

Who wouldn't love a two-storied library in their home with a spiral staircase to reach all the books.

I love this small niche/bookcase. I'm thinking of it for a half wall I have in my family room.

And this is scrum-didily-umptious! Too bad it's fictional!

www.umilta.net about 2/3 of the way down the page has a photo of a monk in what could just conceivably be that library - at least it's what I thought of when I saw it.
