Before I show you the rest, a quick, quick messy look at where we started:
There was a lot of hot pink in here, remnants of when the bookshelf held nothing but my crafting supplies.
Here was our to-do list:
remove all the craft supplies
reogranize the desk-shelf
find an alternative to the ceiling-height bookshelves (Billy from IKEA)
find a better arrangement for the furniture
get rid of clutter
I think we accomplished that:
Billy bookshelves for these shorter models. The room is just too small to accommodate those giant beasts. So we picked these babies up for 20 bucks a piece and loaded them up with Hubs law books and my education books. Everything else got moved to the basement, where the Billys have a new home, where they look smashing, more on that later.

I think this is the first time the dog stayed out of the after pictures!
