Benno DVD/CD Tower in white: $39.99 /249 kr *
Total: $299.94 + tax / 1786 kr
We started with two Benno DVD towers. This is how it looked with just two:
I think the key point to these is decorating them. I mean I am no professional decorator but if you compare the picture above with the one below you can see how added knick-knacks and basically filling out the shelves elevates them above basic white IKEA bookcases.
I am constantly changing the shelves, with the addition of new books (thanks Pal and Grandma!), seasons, and things from the china cabinet. I like that it is a permanent place in the house but with a few tweaks it can be refreshed.
And yes on the top right shelf there is a picture of James Hetfield, I am sure you can guess which family member contributed that piece to the bookshelves!
