searching for the perfect bookcase

Yomaira here on the blog-o-sphere! No, I wont subject you to my free-style rhymes (you should be so lucky!).

So Tacuma and I are on the search of the perfect bookcase. I have a vintage bookcase passed down from my family where I keep all my pertinent dissertation books at hand near my desk. I painted it purple and ka-boom! I’ve got a little gem on my hands!

ANYWAY, Tacuma feels left out and is wanting his own “special bookcase” for his tomes. We’ve toyed with the idea of building one, but really? How far will our grad student procrastination take us? We thought this, this, or even a whole new home furnished by Palo Samko would work but none of them are “the” bookcase. Are we being too picky?  On my search I found these awesome pieces by The Utility Collective appendageandbough, and unlimitedwoodworks. Do we just need to hit-up Brooklyn Flea again?

What do you think? A little too much effort on a tiny part of our apartment? Or a perpetual weekend project for me and my hubby?

yomo over & out!

P.S. this is my “dream a little dream” moment…i wish I could get my husband to agree to do this to our apartment…alas, he put the kibash on my dream!
