Brighten up your bookshelf, with this Book Nook shelf insert. made from upcycled hardback books. This Booknook diorama has led lights in it, and is made to fit on your bookshelf, but you can also use it as a bedside light, on a table in your hallway, on a shelf your desk or anywhere you can fit it!
This is a room with a library bookcase. I made the book nook itself, the cosy chair, the bookcase, pictures and knick knacks, and the heaps of books myself. I try and made most of the contents myself, a lot from things that were destined for recycling.
There are mirrors that reflect everything in the room, giving it the appearance of having further rooms off to the sides. There is a cosy chair and a hard back chair, a pile of books with a bottle of wine and a glass perched on it. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little knick knacks mingled in with the books. This has taken me days to create!
There are lights clustered into a lampshade, these are bright white lights so give a nice bright glow, they are battery operated and take 3 AA batteries. The battery pack is located at the top of the spine, meaning you don’t have to move it to switch the light on and off. The book is black.
Approximate measurement are, just over 6” wide at the front, 9 1/2 tall, and 7” deep including the battery pack.. Hand crafted by me taking quite a few hours, and made from modern day, in great condition, upcycled hardback books, but please allow for minor blemishes on the outside of the book. Yes I treasure books, but thousands upon thousand are sent to landfill each year as they can’t be recycled, so I remove the pages from these so they can be recycled.
Adult collectors only.
