Took most of the books and collection if I-don't-know-what out of this bookcase. Took the desk that was here away. Made it into a nice sitting area. It's adjacent to the dining table. The sideboard behind the dining table never get too out of control with clutter. It's amazing how much more relaxed it feels with all that stuff gone. I donated the majority of the books to a local church for their book sale in the spring.
