The Monday Montage is here to start another week at Offbeat Home. Settle in and let’s browse some interesting finds from the Flickr group.
Joker Venom has a super-classy bookshelf arrangement. It catches my eye every time I go through the Flickr pool. And yo! Did you know it’s Library Week across the Offbeat Empire?
The American Library Association recognizes National Library Week April 10-16, 2011. To celebrate, Offbeat Bride, Offbeat Mama and Offbeat Home are bringing literary-related posts every day this week.
Love lalaleahana’s gorge vintage tablecloth. After like ten views during editing this post, I finally saw the hidden kitty.
Ladydavonia communes with her bearded dragon.
Kat-tastrophe’s smoky little cat has a pretty sweet life in a travel trailer. Awesome, dude. (I’m sorry I’m so cat-obsessed. I like dogs, too!)
So, blindcavefish’s Renato made an ultra-mod crib. Just a super-cool piece of baby furniture made with two bare hands. NO BIG.
Let’s hit the Clicky Links:
- Kick off Library Week with an amazeballs alternative bookshelf.
- Cece and Brenda are driving toward sustainability in a green airstream.
- After all our chatter about pallet crafts, here’s a post about a pallet headboard.
- Offbeat Mama posted a tutorial on making freezer paper stencils. This technique is useful for walls or furniture in addition to clothing.
- Tribe Community Manager Ang comes through again with a link to a kickass comic frame — complete with speech bubble stickers.
- Best invention of the month: Split planters for use over wrought-iron railings, like those on front stoops or balconies.
- Thanks to AndraeaLynne for this video of a 90 square foot apartment in Manhattan.

Comments on Classical book porn, a handmade crib and a menagerie of pets
Love the bearded dragon! The place I used to live/work had one (along with a ton of snakes and turtles) and I’ve been wanting one of my own ever since leaving there.
Woah, that crib is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen!
Ps. I love the kitteh’s. LOVE THEM.
That first link? the book tree? I NEED ONE OF THOSE!!!!
I just about fell out of my chair at my work-desk when I saw my name up there. Woo!
And YAY for library week! I’ve been “banned” from buying any new books until at least May by the boyfriend (which is okay… I bought about $100 in books last month…) so I might start re-painting my bookcase this afternoon.
SUPER awesome that you guys celebrate National Library Week! (Says the librarian.)
