Book Shelves

When I moved to my new apartment, I started looking for book shelves for my tons of craft books. I have so many knitting, crochet, spinning, and sewing books I needed bookshelves that would not buckle under the weight.  Every thing I found was too expensive or just was not strong enough to hold everything. I loved the utilitarian look of the Kenzo Shelf at One King's Lane for $1300 but I wanted a whole wall of bookshelves and I couldn't buy one shelf at that price.

So how do I get the look without giving up an arm or a leg?  In one word -- Lowe's.  Lowe's has the same look of the more expensive shelves for a fraction of the price ($70).  I know I could have painted the metal and shelves but I like this look just fine.  The best part is, besides the price, each shelf can hold 800 lbs.

NEWS -- I have moved

Most already know, but I have moved back to Asheville, NC.  I love that I moved to same apartment complex that I lived in before too.  Asheville is such a cool city and I can't wait to show you my Asheville as well as bring you more fiber art that I create, and decorating my apartment with budget friendly finds. 

No this is not my new home, but couldn't resist posting this picture of Biltmore.
