Bookcases provide a wonderful way to showcase things you love. They are also quite functional in that they provide additional storage. And, can’t we all use a bit more storage?
Here are some pictures (mostly from Pinterest) to provide inspiration for your bookshelves…
It’s fun to start at the back of the bookcase. You can paint, wallpaper, add fabric or beadboard — to create an entirely different look with your bookcase and shelves.
See what a bright color can add to a bookshelf? The coral color makes the objects on the shelves pop!
Bookshelves also make a great foundation for layering your items. Start at the back and work your way forward. This works great when placing artwork, trays or plates as your backdrop.
Adding baskets to bookshelves allows you to hide and store things … great for an office.
