Here bookshelves are built-in at the top of a stairwell, however, you can purchase a bookcase like this on the cheap and use it as a room divider or in an entry way. Add a plant, lamp or candles on top and a tray for keys and voila. A nice room divider on entryway with storage. A small bookcase like this with glass doors would be tres chic. Shop for bargains and dress it up.
