{outfit} A Peek into my World

I wasn't in the mood to take outfit pictures in the heat when I wore this outfit so we decided to do an indoor shoot with my collection wall! These two shelving units are from my grandparents house. My grandfather made them YEARS ago (we're talking way before I was born) and offered them to us when we moved. There were 3 separate pieces but we weren't sure if we'd need or be able to fit all three and just took 2. They weren't painted so rather than having dark brown wood shelves we painted them white so whatever we put on them would pop.

90% of the items on the shelves are mine, thanks to my understanding fiancé. He let me have them to show off my collectibles and he gets to turn the finished basement into a video game/man cave area. Luckily he loves Harry Potter too (and likes Disney) so he doesn't mind having that be the focal point of the living room. Most of my Harry Potter items (left shelving unit) are pretty rare. This is only a small selection of my collection, I have at least 5 rubbermaids full of more stuff. This is just the best of the best.

The other unit is a mixture of Disney and other items. You'll see some Game of Thrones, The Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, a nod to Gilmore Girls and some of fiancés books. I also have some of my gemstones mixed in here and there. They used to be displayed all in one place but I decided to spread them throughout the house. I don't have as much rare Disney memorabilia but I hope to change that eventually, it's just hard to know where to start! I do have more that's not on display since it's in boxes, so we'll see what comes and goes from the shelves as we organize.

  1. Love your new space! It's so great you can finally have all your favorites on display to admire every day. Also your copy of the princess bride is SO gorgeous!

  2. I didn't realize your collection was so big - it looks really impressive displayed like that and definitely makes for a unique room (also, those shelving units are really nice and I think painting them white worked out really well).

  4. I love the bookshelves and what you have done with them !!!!

  5. Love everything about these shelves! I have that Art of Disney book! I found a like new copy at a used bookstore for $2.00!!! I couldn’t believe it!

    1. Wow! That's a crazy deal! I got my paperback one for $15 at a thrift store. The hardcover version was part of an eBay listing for a few books

  6. I love Harry Potter and Disney as well, so I was looking at your pictures like: "I want it so much!" :) Actually having a wand was my dream ever since I read HP when I was 11, what a shame I didn't get one. I really like your shorts, btw.
