What it is: A basic ready-to-assemble bookshelf gets a makeover and, in turn, can work even harder.    How to make it: Cover the inside of your bookshelf with a decal that's easy to remove and update later. Then hot-glue two layers of ribbon to the front of each shelf for added embellishment. Add tags made from scrapbooking papers to keep books organized by genre.
