Teeeheeeeeeeheeee, giggle snort...At least it was a bookshelf, not your brain.Heeheheeeheeheee.
:( ooooh,Nikki! last year almost happened the same here - before the shelf exploded she sent us a signal throwing down a lot of books! it's a lot of work...
aagh - are the books alright?Well, obviously are YOU alright, but are the books unharmed in the explosion!?I've been enjoying your blog, thanks for sharing - the making and the exploding.Cheers,AJ
Sorry but I've got to say that's Hilarious!!!! At least an opportunity to thoroughly go through your books presents itself now and cull if necessary!
hmmmm, at least you will have a good look at your books again.
It's probably a good thing it's a cheap Ikea bookshelf if you're going to be moving it around without taking all the books out! I hope you and your books are okay.
You poor thing!
Ah yes, I see your problem. It is there in those last two pics. Too many children's books.
LOL! Story of my life!
Oh dear! Hope you and your books are ok! Any chance of returning it to Ikea with photos? LOL!
Oh Nooooooo! What a disaster. I would have given up and plonked myself on the floor for a good frustration relieving cry.
I agree with Trasha, too many kids books, I noticed them too...
Oh the humanity & to have to replace the book shelf AS WELL as putting all the books somewhere. I have a similiar cheap but handy book shelf which i can no longer access as my husband dumped a 3 draw filing cabinette in the front of it?? Um, clearly he didn't think i needed anything from the book case?? At least when it collapses, it will be held up by 1000kg of steel. Love Posie
Hmm - it was at the last poitn I sayThough I am interested n the craft book with the duck and pony on the front!!??
A good time to rediscover those books you forgot you had. BTW....Nikki, what is the name of the (probably) Japanese pattern book in the 1st and 2nd photos with the gorgeous flowing, twisted top on the back cover? It looks gorgeous....and I have to track it down!!!Hope the clean up didn't take long!
Oh dear!No doubt you will find a heap of things you forgot you had when you put them all back.
Oh dear, we have some of those cheap flat-packed book cases as well.....might need to review the amount on them.Hope you got cleaned up ok.
uh oh I think I have 2 of them in my craft room and the shelves are starting to bow a little !!!!!!I have just cleared 3 huge piles out of books to go on ebay so hopefully they won't fall everywhere!hope nothing precious was damaged! and at least no one humans were hurt!!!Corrie:)
Sue - The Japanese book is PATTERN MAGIC... and is truly magical.
Brush yourself off, pick yourself up, and start all over again .......... I bet you've already done that ...
And the the time it takes to reaquaint yourself with every single lovely craft book , hours and hours wasted , sigh ...

I would interpret this as a great excuse to browse all those crafty books, and (gulp) start another project!
Same thing happened to me with my very overcrowded fabric shelves. Looked like a cotton factory exploded!
Oh I remember when I did that. I actually tried to fix the bookcase and use it again. the second explosion was more in slow motion.
I also love books and I suppose not many bookcases can support our craft addictions! I have had to split my collection up and store them in different areas for safety sake!
