I am sooooo excited! This weekend we took all the primed pieces of all 5 bays of the bookcases up to the Lodge and got them all nailed together and set in place. Although there is much more to be done to the bookcase wall such as adding the long shelves that will join all these small compartments, adding the electrical outlets to the mopboard parts of the bookcases and the front side trims; not to mention they need their top two coats of paint... they already look amazing. I am not quite sure why I have such a love of library walls. When I see one done nicely, I am instantly transported back to Merry Ole' England and that is just what happened when I stood back and looked at my new wall after stocking it with the books I had already moved to the Lodge.

I love those bookcases so much I think you've inspired some more ideas in my head for bookcases at our house, don't tell Drew!
