    Turn a bookshelf into a shoe rack.

    love the pops of colour with grey. When you are sick of the blue, its easily replaced by yellow, purple, or green ect. Instead of completely redecorating the whole room.

    Ikea book shelf on its side = bench!

    i think i should do this to my entertainment center. the cubby holes are too dark. dunno what color to do though. it is a dark brown/black and our living room is light khaki. hmmmmm.

    Painting inside of bookcases/cabinets a fun color.

    Remove closet doors, put up curtains, build new shelves and drawers inside. Easier access and makes more room in the bedroom

    3 small bookcases...= Reading Nook...Love this idea! ( 2 bookcases standing and one on its side )
