Alright here's the pic of my bookshelf and note the 2 empty shelves on the bottom. That's a preview to how our Christmas tree will be decorated too. I love it! 9' tall and everything fits out of Grayson reach. I made sure to put Justin's Spanish books in MacKenzie reach:) I've been checking craigslist for a while and finally found the perfect fit with the perfect price. I agree with my other family members... I just can't pay full price for furniture when I know I can find it used on craigslist!
