30 Days of Organization - #2 Red Bookcases

We had these red bookcases built a couple years ago. They are free standing but with a long, solid top to make them look a little more built-in. It is a great way to organize our books, games, art supplies, etc, but the last few months, with homeschooling and travel, they have gotten a little out of control.

Out of Control 

I took everything off of them, pulled them out, cleaned behind, dusted all the shelves, sorted all the books/papers/stuff, and put things back neatly. I also mixed up the upper display area with the maps I recently framed. The "Happiness" canvas print has a big tear in it, so it is getting moved to a wall in the basement (I like it too much to just throw it out!)
Has to get worse to get better
I'm so happy with the result. It makes the whole family room/kitchen seem so much cleaner and neater!
After is so much better!
