We've been looking for new bookcases. We haven't found too many freestanding shelves we like, but we do love the repurposed kitchen cabinet shelving we've seen in a couple of AT House Tours. More below:
Andreas used kitchen cabinets to create a floating credenza in his Greektown loft. We love how the top shelf shows off his favorite books, while the bottom cabinets conceal storage.
Christy and John used kitchen cabinet shelving to make a custom cabinet that runs the length of their entire second floor, from the hallway through the bedroom.
In the hallway, the shelves hold their many books. In the bedroom, the closed cabinets conceal laundry storage. For affordable kitchen cabinet shelving, IKEA is the go-to source, but we're wondering if anyone has other suggestions.
