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 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 miniature library room with a bookcase, and this is extra wide so as to fit a desk and chair in. I made the book nook itself, the cosy chair, the desk, the table, the bookcase, ladder, pictures, fire, window, table and knick knacks, the pictures and the heaps of books I try and made almost all of the contents myself, a lot from things that were destined for recycling. I think I have made everything apart from the wooden chair, the bottle and glass. There is a cosy chair and a table with a bottle of wine and a glass, I can swap these for mug and chocolate cake. There are some fab works of art on the walls, of vintage advertising. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little knick knacks mingled in with the books, and there is a little ladder.. There are lights clustered into a lampshade. There are lights outside the window making the light shine in, there are lights in the fire making it glow red, these are white lights so give a nice bright glow, they are battery operated and take 2 AA batteries. Gosh I love my fire! took me weeks to perfect that. 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. Approximate measurement are, just over 7 1/2” 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.
