This Week's Ideabook on Houzz: Built-in Bookshelves~

Do you love to read? If you have a collection of books like I do, storage becomes an issue. Sure, you can go buy bookshelves. And that works just fine. But dedicating a space to your books with built-in bookshelves is a lot more fun, and definitely more stylish.

Feeling inspired to make a commitment to your tomes? Here's a collection of built-in ideas that will have you ready to read. Not much of a reader? Built-ins are great for tchotchkes too!
