My Rainbow Bookcase

My Rainbow Bookcase

A while back, me and my twin brother decided to re-arrange our bookcase. Previously, it had been arranged in the typical way of author’s surname. However, we decided to switch it up. Now, it is arranged by colour!

I am not really sure I decided to change it, perhaps it was I felt inspired by all the wonderful photos of rainbow bookcases online. I just wanted a change!


So, how did it go? It took about half an hour to move everything as all the colours were very spread apart. We found it quite difficult especially as the shelves on our bookcase are of different heights so we decided to have the colours going down instead of across.

It was a great opportunity to say goodbye to some of the books we hadn’t read in ages. I know it is sad to let go of books, however, it means there is more space for new ones!


We used the classic way of laying out books by just putting them vertically. Next time we could have been more creative but we were not sure how it was going to turn out.

I like the finished effect and I actually find it easier to find books; strangely enough! I am not sure what the future holds for this bookcase, who knows?

  1. OH MY GOODNESS, so beautiful *cries tears of joy* A while back I arranged my bookshelf to be rainbow, but now I have too many books so I have to put them all in piles in front of the others so that sort of ruins the effect haha. I really need to sort out my other bookshelf so I can fit them all onto shelves!

  2. I LOVE your bookcase!!! It’s always been a dream of mine to get one in my room, or at least some shelves to display my books, but I’ve never gotten the chance! You’re so lucky to have space for such a huge bookcase😍🖤
