While reading the discussion about phone niches last week, we learned that AT:SF regular aquarabbit uses hers to store CDs and DVDs. We thought that was a great idea, and in light of another recent post on media storage, we asked her to share images. She graciously responded. Here you can see the extra-long nook, barely discernible behind her CD collection. And it does indeed make a great place to store media. She writes, "I still wonder what this niche was originally for. It's kind of big for a telephone niche, but I can't figure out what it is. It makes a perfect home for CDs and DVDs.
Phone nook or no, the idea could work on a smaller scale, with half as many shelves and some simple steel shelf supports. Aquarabbit, what did you use? Anyone else out there with a great phone nook? Send us pics or post them to flickr with the tag apartmenttherapysanfrancisco so that we can get them onto the front page!
