After I took down our Christmas decorations, the house was feeling pretty bare. Part of me liked it because it felt…fresh in a way. And that means Spring is on its way, right? But our bookshelves were looking pretty sad and too naked. So they got a little makeover!

I started to try and just rearrange things…but quickly realized I’d do a better job if I emptied the whole thing and started over. I usually do these things before Brandon gets home because he probably would have been a little concerned if he walked into the dining room and saw this:
I did add in a few new pieces but for the most part I just recycled items I already had and rearranged/repurposed them. I love, love, love, how these turned out! And although it’s still January I’m loving how fresh and Springy it feels!
Have you done any Spring cleaning or decorating yet?
