      Wrap the couch in bookshelves rather than have end tables. Our Living room isn't big enough to -wrap- them around, but I really like the idea of doing this against the back of the cough instead of trying to find a cheap sofa table, which has less storage. The only concern would be kids trying to climb them...

      This is a great idea for adding storage in your living room and in the place of end tables! Just add book shelves around the sofa!

      Wrap the couch in bookshelves vice end tables/sofa table. Cool idea if there's room to actually do something like this.

    My next diy project-- turning my ikea expedit bookcase into a tv stand. I will be adding 6 inch legs though. I think there is a photo around of the bookcase as a tv stand with legs. I'll find it and post it.
