  • Put solid colored items on colored shelves

 

  • Display all of your pictures on bookshelves

 

  • Group like colored items together for easy organization

 

  • Use bookcases in the kitchen to store recipe books and interesting pots and pans

 

  • Take the outdoors inside and store seasonal finds such as seashells and pine cones

 

  • A bookcase in a sitting area can hold coffee and teapots, mugs, and sugar

 

  • Make your own bookends using old vases or ceramics

 

  • Painting your bookcase white gives a beach feel to any room

 

  • Attach a chalkboard to the side of a bookcase for easy note taking or doodling

 

  • A tension rod placed under the top of your bookcase with curtains hides your belongings. You can use fabric that matches the room or make a statement with an accent color.
