Liven up your book shelf with this book nook shelf insert. There are 5 LED fairy lights in the ceiling in light shades, and these are really quite bright when turned on in the dark, they are bright white lights. There is a standard lamp with a light in, with lights at the back of the chair as well that really highlight this area. This is a rather cosy chair and footstool, there is a small table which has a book, a hot drink and chocolate bar, a plant and ornament. There is a little pile of books on the floor, a fab none working fire, and an adorable dog who is optional, please let me know if you want him. There is a Tibetan silver stags head on the wall. There is a bookcase crammed with books, with various nick nacks on the top, including a real shell, and vintage style telephone. The background is a photo quality image of a library. The chair, footstool, bookcase, the standard lamp, the little table, the little books, cushion and bottles I made myself, some from things destined for the recycling bin. Yes I could have bought them but I am a constant collector of things I deem too good to throw away! The chair isn’t glued in, so if you prefer one from another book nook, I can swap it for you, apart from the ones with side facing chairs, they are already glued in.
The battery pack is attached at the back for ease of changing the batteries, and the switch is at the top of the book at the end of the spine.
The book is black with black finishing , and measures just under 9 1/2″ tall, the book almost 6″ deep, 71/4″ including battery pack, almost
6 1/2″ wide at the front then tapers towards the back. It uses 2 AA batteries.
Hand crafted by me, taking quite a few hours, and made from upcycled books, so please allow for minor blemishes . Yes I treasure books but lots of unwanted hardback books end up in landfill as they can’t be recycled. Rest assured the pages from the books I use have been removed from the spine, and recycled.
Adult collectors only.
