This week we take a look inside the bookcase.
There's so much shelf space. The DIY boxes helped to fill it up.
It's not only books that will go inside the library....but other Beauty and the Beast related items too. Characters like Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts and Chip are Belle's new friends at the castle and are integral to the story.
I launched an Amazon wishlist for this project and received a gorgeous illustrated book!
I really wanted to display these dishes inside the library and I think they add that Disney touch! The books match the dishes. You can read more about this collection HERE.
What this library needed most was --- BOOKS!
Books are expensive. I sent out a blitz text to family, friends and co workers asking for empty cereal and snack boxes. I received several and was able to cover them as they came in, with faux leather looking scrapbook paper. This filled in the gaps inside my bookshelves.
A little craft glue and fancy papers really dressed the boxes up and transformed them into regal books!
I placed a bid on a furniture auction at my local college and won this 3' x 13" x 80" bookcase for the library. It has adjustable shelves which is a plus!!
I ran out of paint - LOL - but the bookcase is perfect.
This bookcase holds A LOT of books! Until I am able to actually fill each shelf, I placed temporary prop books to hold space.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
