Our condo has a built-in bookcase, which we very quickly made use of and filled up. It also has this built-in set of shelves over to the left of our bed, Murphy.
This set of shelves is shorter and narrower than the built-in bookcase. Technically you could use them as a bookcase as well, if you moved the little shelves around just right, but then you’d be left with a bunch of leftover shelves and really not that much space for books anyway.
So we used these shelves to display stuff. Including the very top of the set of shelves, there are 12 shelves of varying heights, all displaying different things. While the stuff on each shelf brings me joy, this shelf in particular is my favorite.
Such a random collection of stuff, and yet it all works so well together.
