Brighten up your bookshelf, with this Book Nook shelf insert. made from upcycled hardback books. This Booknook diorama, miniature room has led lights in it, and is a bookshelf insert to slot between your books, 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! My book nooks are fully assembled and ready to go, and I post frequently during the week
This is a room with a library bookcase. I made the book nook itself, the cosy chair, the bookcase, pictures, table and knick knacks, the pictures 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 table with a hot drink and a chocolate cake. There are some fab works of art on the walls. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little knick knacks mingled in with the books. This has taken me days to create,. These are timer lights, turn them on ( switch goes to middle setting) and they will switch off themselves after 6 hours, they also repeat, so if you turn them on at 6pm at night, they will switch themselves off at 12 pm, and they will do this every night at the same time,. They also have a normal on/off setting.
There are lights clustered into a lampshade, and a shade in the corner, these are warm white lights so give a nice warm glow, they are battery operated and take 2 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 blue.
Approximate measurement are, 6. 1/4” wide, 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.
