I suck at stacking bookshelves. Stacking a bookshelf is somewhat difficult when you are trying to make things pretty. I always start out with some kind of cute configuration and then I start adding stuff as I accumulate things. The bookshelf slowly goes from stylish to overstuffed. I would love a bookshelf like this one shown on La Dolce Vita, but I know that I couldn’t possibly organize it like this. I would fill it to the brim in no time.
