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 with matching footstool. There is a small table which has a telephone, a drink , a real shell, a book, a bottle and a pair of spectacles too. There are little piles of books on the floor, and a Tibetan silver stags head on the left wall, a plant and a lucky Chinese cat ornament. The background is a photo quality image of a library. The chair, footstool, the standard lamp, the little table, the little books and cushion 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 see one you prefer in another book nook, I can swap it for you.
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 1/4″ 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.
