    Replace a closet door with a bookshelf door. - SUCH a cool idea! I do somewhat wonder how the hinges would hold up to the weight of actually having the bookshelves full, but hopefully it IS functional.

    Replace a closet door with a bookcase door. Awesome because then you have a secret room. Closet wall all book shelves and add shelves to closet door while turning closet into a treasure/reading nook.
