Too Many Cookbooks!

I have too many cookbooks. I have tried different solutions to this "problem". Actually, HAVING the cookbooks is not a problem, as I love my cookbooks, and I really use them. I have weeded out anything I can part with, but the STORAGE of the books is the problem!

I already have two small bookcases in my kitchen. I moved three shelves of cookbooks to my casita shelves, and got rid of LOTS of therapy books (my interns were happy to take them off my hands). I hate going outside to the casita to look for a recipe.

I had to think OUTSIDE the BOX! With a little assembly help from Brad, there are two new bookcases in our great room that form a sofa table behind the couch, steps from the kitchen where I use them, so I moved all the ITALIAN cookbooks there. See where that spring basket went?

I now have a baking/dessert section on the kitchen shelves, and only half a shelf of books left in the casita.

Hey, that looks really nice behind the sofa!!! When I first saw the pic of Brad, I thought he was IN the ottoman (in his den)trying to find room for cookbooks. Just shows how even pictures can be deceiving!!! LOL!

Brad truly is a saint . . . he looks as if he had just walked in the door from the office. LOL

Great solution - and a giving husband! The bookshelf looks great and functional for you!

I LOVE the photo of Brad! Too cool! :)

Did you pay Brad to get into that bookcase for a cool blog photo? :) Beautiful bookcase!

Julmarie:

Where did you get the bookshelves? They look great!
