    How to make a mudroom or front entryway for cheap; 35 dollars for the two bookcases, and some baseboard trim to make it look like a great built in (for the laundry room or front entry way). All this can be purchased at Lowes.

    IKEA Billy bookcases + Lowe's kitchen wall cabinet + cut-to-fit shelf for seating + wainscoting = awesome entryway system or laundry room for under $300. (Save idea for VT mudroom.)

Two bookcases ($34.99) anchor this makeover. The baseboard wrapping the base creates a custom-built look. For extra storage, divide the bottom units to create cubbies for shoes.

Love display shelves. If only I had shelves and awesome things to perfectly arrange like this.

Bookcase Buffet - When it comes to creating posh pieces of furniture for your dining room, think outside the box. Convert bookcases into a custom store-and-serve buffet. Using wall anchors, hang a pair of bookcases horizontally while placing a third on the floor directly below. Mount the middle bookcase at counter height so it can be used as a serving station.

Molding on the bookshelves with contrasting color painted inside

Entryway organization Bookcase with a set of drawers to organize small items and put wire cooling racks on a plastic mat to put shoes on. Attach hooks on side to store keys.

    Love this...if only we had just 4 pairs of shoes to put away rather then like 9 *sigh*

    I was thinking of doing two bookcases side by side. I feel like we have a lot of shoes too.

Easy enough to make in 3 separate pieces that can travel the country with us and be re sized to one or two pieces as necessary.

There's something really appealing about this scarf. It doesn't take itself seriously, the lace makes it seem more delicate :)

i love the idea of taking an empty wall off the kitchen and turning it into a built-in bookcase for cookbooks

Use tension rods to transform a bookcase into the perfect crafts and gift-wrapping station. I am telling you Better Homes & Gardens knows EVERYTHING! What a great idea, especially with the upcoming holidays!
