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 mousetrap ( we have all been there) a plant, and a
Buddha ornament, there are lots of things scattered everywhere.
There are lights in the bookcase, behind the chair, and in bubble shades in
the ceiling, these are bright white lights so give a nice bright glow, they are
battery operated and take 3 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 7” wide at the front and then in tapers
in towards the back, 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.
