Elfa shelving!

Yay! The Elfa shelving in the dining room is finally up and fully loaded with books. Sorry for the grainy photos, our dining room doesn’t get a lot of light and my camera is fussy.

It was more than a little nerve wracking putting the shelves up: everything hangs from a single horizontal rail at the top! This makes installation fairly easy, but wow…it was scary putting all those heavy books on there. It’s been 36 hours and it’s still on the wall, though, so hopefully everything is going to be okay. We’re very happy with how it looks, and are now planning to put in more shelving on the other side of the fireplace. It will be great to have all of our books (minus the comics and graphic novels…ugh) put away!
