Creative Storage: Books in the Fireplace

Creative Storage: Books in the Fireplace

We were browsing the photos over at AB Chao and came across a fantastic storage solution for those overflowing bookshelves in a home with a non-working fireplace.

We love the creative strategies for filling in a fireplace with books - and the eclectic feeling they create in a room. Stacks oriented in different directions gives a slightly checkerboard effect, and tall columns of books have a learned academic feel.

However you choose to fill your fireplace with books, just make sure you keep the flames away!
