Bookcase: Take #2

OK, this is why I love blogging. And my blogging friends. They give their honest opinion and throw a bucket of water over you when you're looking like making a silly decision.

After heading back to the shops this week it was very tempting to buy the first thing I saw, and then everything after that too. But one reason for having the break from decorating in the first place was so I could take stock and think carefully about remaining purchases one at a time. And only buy things I love and am sure are right for the spot. So as a reminder, this is the spot where I will be putting the book shelf/ves.

I have now looked for some 'industrial' style shelves. What do we think of these:

No. 1

No. 2
No. 3
No. 4

 This one from Etsy is more 'rustic'

Or these are slightly more French. (and bottom two more console/sideboard-y)

My taste really is all over the place isn't it. And I know I was going to head away from dark and go white instead but I'm drawn to these darker pieces.

And here is the chair I mentioned last post. I like the denim but the super shiny legs put me off.
 I'm keen to hear what you have to say!



  1. I like no. 3 & 4. I think they would be a nice contrast in that space.

    Enjoy your window shopping while you make your decision!

  2. I like 2, 3 or 4, depending on their size and how they'd fit the space. Have fun!

  3. Love number 3 and the white/wood French style ones. It looks like quite a 'long' space to fill, so anything too small may look lost. It's so hard finding the 'right' pieces, but I do adore the 3rd industrial one! Good luck!

    1. Thanks stormy. I am very aware of filling the area. I am prepared to buy 2 smaller units if appropriate/necessary.

  4. I love # 3! And # 4 if space allows. That chair is GORGEOUS!!!!!!
