Color Coded Bookshelves

by Erin

We finally got around to unpacking a few of the 'less necessary' boxes that are still hanging around.  The majority of those said boxes were filled with books.  Been there?  I figured.  We've got these really fun cottage-y bookshelves in two of our bedrooms and Max and I were both excited about filling one set of shelves with color coded books.  The Dewey Decimal System is obsolete, right, so what better way to categorize books than by color? 

So here are the empty, sad shelves. 

Empty shelves. Blah.
And here is the happy transformation!

Doesn't that look fun?  We'll see how it easy it is to find a book when I need one, but I have a sneaking sense it will be pretty effective.  I mean, let's be real, it's hard not to judge (or remember) a book by it's cover.
