Wear the old coat and buy the new book.

Our family has always read lots of books -- together, apart, whatever. For the final piece (the combined bookcase and desk) to be designed in my daughter's bedroom, I chose a book theme. The sides of the bookcase itself are filled with quotes about books and the sides of the desk are filled with book titles and authors. These are all favorites of my family. I asked them all what titles and authors they would most like to have burned into the piece, and that's what I did. Now, it really belongs to all of us.
