A few years ago I upgraded to an Expedit bookcase from Ikea. I only got the 4x4 as it seemed to be "big enough" at the time to replace my two tiny bookcases. HA!  I don't remember what it looked like when it got here but it has slowly but surely filled up.  It holds books, sparkly, glittery goodies, old textbooks, beach reads, my Julia Child cookbooks, and two vintage cork lamps with Liberty of London lampshades to name a few.

This is what the bookcase looked like a few days ago.

The problem with the giant bookcase is that it needs to be moved so that old couches can be moved out and the new couch moved in not to mention where the new cable hook up needs to go so that all the furniture can be moved around.  So everything needed to come off the bookcase so that it could be moved.  So this past weekend (on what I'm sure was the hottest day of the year) I moved all the books, dog toys, frames, and tchotkes on to an the dining table (with the extra leaf).  After about forty minutes (almost) everything was off.

Dining table with bookcase contents (and the desk chair and dog bowls lingering around as well)
Oh my goodness!  The books that were hiding in that thing!  I think a book donation is going to happen before I move everything back. 

I can't wait to have everything back to normal - living in chaos for the next week and a half is not something I'm looking forward to.
