We have had bookcase problems since moving into our farmhouse almost 8 years ago.
The problem was that we moved into this house with no bookcases for our living room.
We had built so many built in bookcases in our previous house that we had no where to put our books when we moved in.
And…. I have been trying to figure out where to puts these books every since!
First, I trash picked an extra large bookcase that was great but way too big for the room.
That bookcase moved down to the family room & later was sold on Craigslist when we decided to rearrange the room.
Most recently, my books have living on our built in bookshelves in the kitchen.
But who wants to read books at their kitchen table???
It just wasn’t practical.
So…. enter our new Ikea Malsjo cabinet bookcase!
Our new bookcase is just beautiful, it is incredibly sturdy & brings great farmhouse decor style to our living room.
Even sturdy enough to hold heavy books… like my fav coffee table books on the top shelf.
I do love decorating my books in a rainbow… makes styling a bookcase so much prettier. 🙂
I love how our Ikea Malsjo glass cabinet bookcase looks centered between our two windows.
The glass doors on the side & front of the Ikea Malsjo cabinet add a touch of class & formality to our farmhouse living room.
I can’t wait to curl up with one of my favorite books with a fire on a cold fall morning or night.
It is so nice to have ALL my books together in the same room again!
The glass doors of the Ikea Malsjo cabinet also make it a lot easy for me when it comes to dusting!!!
I also love the look of our DIY wooden Christmas houses, houseplants & sweet crocheted pumpkins my sister in law made for me (thanks Amy!) on top of it.
I must confess that this will probably not be the last bookcase in our farmhouse… we have a built in Ikea bookcase hack we hope to add to the family room soon to add our board games, kids books & picture frames to.
However… the best part about our Ikea Malsjo bookcase is that we can take it with us whenever we move again. 🙂
If you are thinking about purchasing an Ikea Malsjo cabinet, I hope my glowing review with help make you decide.
It did take us a few hours to put together despite my having a VERY handy husband but for the cost & quality of our Ikea Malsjo cabinet it was totally worth it!!!
