I still made changes after this....


More greenery was added to the 2nd shelf, a metal bird joined the insulator on the wood box, and a white wire planter form is behind the lamp.

I've added some empty frames into the mix for interest.





I think this is a nice change.  

Do you tweak your bookcases often?
