You may remember that during Jane in June, I hosted a little contest for CSN stores for an adorable 3 pc cube bookshelf set. Well, when I got back from DC, I got them up and lookin' pretty, and got all ready to review -- and my camera went AWOL. I kept putting off posting the review because I wanted to show you what they look like on my walls, but I give. You can see how cute they are from the CSN picture, and I want someone to win, already (and I'm sure you do, too).
First, let me just say they're adorable. I am a fan of dark wood, and they have just the perfect chocolate shade, and they have a nice depth to them. They are slightly smaller than I envisioned, but that is probably due to the fact that I am horrible with dimensions. Still, you're not going to fit much on these shelves, especially the smaller one.
That being said, I don't think it matters in the least. They are a fantastic style element in the room, and it's so fun to play around with them. I am not lying when I say that I sat on the floor with them for hours the day I opened them, just shuffling them around and making the most ridiculous minute adjustments to decide how I wanted them placed on the wall. I think my family thought I was crazy. Ironically, I ended up with an arrangement very similar to the one in the picture... But the beauty of these is that they are small enough and light enough that moving them around isn't much of an issue. I can work them in with other things, or rearrange them when I get bored. Next time around, I think I am going to go for a graduated big-to-small look. The organizer in me loves this.
So all in all, you really can't beat it. On sale for $29, free shipping, easy to put up, instant modern coolness to the room -- what more could you want?
Oh, you want to win them. Silly me. Well, just for you, I'm extending the contest for 1 week. You have 7 days to get your entries into this form and win!
Contest ends Saturday, July 31st.
US and Can only.
