Moving back home for my student teaching is a little bit of a transition. It's hard from living sorta independently to being back home with my family, in my childhood room. I mean, going from a full size bed to a twin is kinda not fun. No matter how my mom tries to spin it.
But one of the fun things is decorating my room at home. Changing out things and making it more exciting and new is pretty cool.
And one of the things that I'm kind of contemplating these days is investing in a new bookcase. See, I have a cheap Walmart one in my room right now. And it's kind of in the phase where it has a lot of old books on it, some new things, and isn't really where I want it to be right now.
I've always loved Ikea's bookcases, particularly the Hemnes glass front bookshelf. I think it's gorgeous. Unfortunately, it's a little pricey.
The more affordable option, the Borgsjo is pretty cool too.
The thing that I like about these shelves is that they offer glass fronts, so dust isn't as bad. And they have doors so I can store lots of ugly books and cluttery things.
What do you say? Do you think it's worth the investment? And which shelf do you like better? I love love love the looks of the Hemnes one. But I do like how deep the drawers are on the Borgsjo shelf.
