Virus update. Please allow for delays, the postal service is doing its best, but in these unprecedented times, parcels may be delayed. I include your tracking number in your item dispatched notification. I am UK based, and UK orders are sent Royal Mail special next day delivery. Overseas orders are sent Royal Mail tracked. My book nooks are made and ready to go, I may have to glue in the chair or a figure which will dry overnight. I post frequently during the week.
Brighten up your bookshelf, with this Book Nook shelf insert, made from upcycled hardback books.
This is a new design, I have made this one bigger, with more space inside than my usual ones. A cosy chair in a sitting room, with stairs leading to upstairs with a door. There is a bookcase heaped with book, and a selection of knick knacks on the top. The hidey hole under the stairs has a suitcase ( packed with old love letters?) more books, and a Chinese lucky cat ornament. The table has a chocolate cake and hot drink. There are various pictures hanging on the walls, and a stags head. I am particularly proud of the stairs I made! There are two chairs to choose from, please let me know which you prefer.
I made the Booknook itself, the bookcase, the chair, the stairs and door, the table, pictures on walls mounted on board, bottles, lampshades, fake suitcase and radio, and all the books myself, this has taken me countless hours to complete. In fact I have made almost everything in this myself apart from the mug , the lucky cat ornament rug and the chocolate cake!
There are two light shades with a cluster of lights in each, these are bright white lights so give a nice 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 blue, with black finishing.
The background is a photo quality image, the wallpaper is images of pages from books.
Approximate measurement are, almost 6” wide , 9 1/2 tall, and 7 1/4” 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.
