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 brick lined room with a library bookcase. I made the book nook itself, the cosy chair, the bookcase, pictures, table 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 is a cosy chair , piles of books, a table with a hot drink and a cream cake and other knick knacks, a tiny suitcase made of card and a couple of box games.. The bookcase is heaped with books, and various little knick knacks mingled in with the books. The walls have lots of old vintage advertising pictures, mounted on board, I just love the colours in these so vivid. There is a fake electric fire, a brilliant goldfish bowl with 2 black fish in, a plant, and a Buddha ornament, there are lots of things scattered everywhere. I haven’t glued the chair in yet so could swap it for another one, I have a few different ones available.
There are lights in the bookcase, behind the chair, and in the ceiling, these are bright white lights so give a nice bright 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 nook is black.
Approximate measurement are, just over 6 1/2” wide at the front and it tapers towards the back where it is aprox 3 ½” 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.
Adult collectors only.
