Dressing up the Book Shelves

I am slowly getting the finishing touches on the decorating department around here.  Then I am off to KnJ's house to help them get their place festive...but not too Christmasy as my son put it!  They have a great style of modern, clean lines goin on at their house and I love it as well!   It has been fun helping them with their reno ideas and decorating in a different style.  I will be sure to post some pictures of what we all came up with.

This small nook of our family room/kitchen area used to be a closet.  We decided to put shelves in it instead, allowing a good place for favorite items.

Here is how it turned out this year!







I like bringing out the Christmas items
Gifts from friends, special keepsakes, things from the past...






What are some of your favorite decorations you put up at your house?

So pretty, Dawna. I find book shelves can be difficult to decorate, but you did a fantastic job!

Love your built in shelves, so much nicer than hiding things away in the closet. I'm vintage all the way this year, not too much stuff, but just the things I really love.

Great idea to turn the closet into shelving! It looks really nice. One of my favourite items to put out is the white ceramic nativity set that my mum bought me back in the 80's. Also, I have an angel that our neighbour gave me and my sister when we were just kids. The angel has a wind up base that plays Silent Night. It must be over 50 years old now. Treasures.

This is the second post I've read this week where a closet has been turned into display shelves. I think it's such a great idea. Yours looks so pretty, Dawna. My favorite Christmas decoration is my Nativity. Have a wonderful Christmas season. xxx ~ Nancy
