As promised...

I couldn't find actual "before" pictures of our office/playroom, but this image sums it up very well...
Ready-made bookshelves (well, any furniture, really) are quite pricey down here, so we hired our landscaper/carpenter to reproduce some shelving units I spied in Ballard. He did a great job, although I regret using a high gloss finish. Still, at least our myriad of books no longer provide free housing to spiders, etc..
Ben sweetly did the organizing while I was in The States...
But, I think they could still use a bit more purposeful styling....
Paying extra attention to great bookshelves, now.
