Book Displays

I have wanted to find a way to make my cookbooks more accessible for some time now, as having them on a bookshelf in my office was a less than convenient spot for them. I hadn't displayed them in the kitchen because I'm a person who doesn't like clutter; but I finally decided that I had enough counter space to display them flanked with a set of cute bookends. I came across this set of apples this weekend and was sold. I set up my cookbooks on a diagonal on my countertop and couldn't be happier with how it looks. I also picked up a set of bird bookends to display some of my books on the dresser in my office. I decided to display all of the books I have that have pink covers to pick up the pink in the desk I painted recently. Below is a sneak peek of the dresser I painted black; I'll post before and after photos as soon as the hardware comes in the mail.
