Bookshelf stairs -- I like these a lot better than other versions, because there are no books on the stairs themselves, which looks cluttered. I feel like even with my limited carpentry skills, I could build these.
Another idea for wine bar: in a cabinet under basement stairs! Space shelves so they are tall enough for bottles, or make horizontal bottle holders, hanging racks for glasses, wine & beer fridge underneath and drawers for all the tools. Love it!
Baement stairs idea? Pinner says: I love Spanish and Italian tile - Hand painted tiles on stair risers. These stair risers are covered with colorful Catalina style tiles, which combine glossy and matte finishes. This adds wonderful depth to the patterns.
