I love this idea: "Find a china hutch or curio cabinet on Craigslist, paint it black, and repurpose it into an antique book cabinet." I could do this with my curio cabinet, or the maple hutch in the corner.
This bookshelf wall is the dream of every bookworm. How else will you store all your books in your dream home or interior? I always love when bookshelves go over a doorpost and all the way to the ceiling.
