    this is absolutely gorgeous and really inspiring to me as i move from a 1700+ sq ft apt to a 600 sq ft apt. do you mind telling me what colors you used on the walls?

    I'm curious about the billy bookshelves. I've read a lot of reviews about how they have low maximum load, the shelves are shallow, and they show wear easily. I know these are really inexpensive additions, but am hesitant about using them if they aren't really going to hold up. Also a little worried about attaching to the wall in my rental. Did you mount yours to the wall?

    The bookcases are pretty decent for the price. They hold a nice amount of books (as seen in my photos – and I don't even have the backs on them) Without the backs, they do move right-left but because of how I placed mine, they sit straight up. As far as mounting, I would consider mounting if your shelves are on carpet. I have my credenza in front of them so felt comfortable with not mounting. It's more of a personal choice. I would look on Craigslist for some if you want to try them out. Good luck!
