I adored our rainbow bookshelf but wanted something more streamlined; still organized and color-coordinated, but less in-your-face than an obvious rainbow. We wanted to incorporate some of our display items, too, so it’s not just books. Using this photo from my Pinterest as inspiration, Monique from Decor Musings and I made it happen.
When I first “rainbowed”, all of our DVDs were on the bottom shelf, but we put them in a book with sleeves (and the cases in storage). Then we put all of our “stuff” on the bottom shelf.

The “stuff on the bottom” thing looked messy, and insane, but our new configuration is perfect! It’s more grown up but still quirky. I love it!
