The custom bookcase not only solved the problem of the built-in AC unit, but the shelves provide storage and display in the living area. The large coffee table is distressed and rugged, the perfect place for kicking up your feet and relaxing.
An elegant wood shelf made of stacked open rectangles is a beautiful storage unit for the kitchen when it's filled with simple stacks of plates and pantry items. Their symmetry keeps the look peaceful, not busy.
In this living room, an unusual shelf sits atop a concrete slab; its wide-spaced wood slats allow the sunlight to filter in. Below, a long, low modern fireplace echoes the general shape and lines of the ranch home.
Reclaimed wood can warm up a space, and crates can add all-important storage, even to an area on display. Jen Woodhouse of The House of Wood used crates to fill this bookcase, making it decorative and functional. For another custom touch, she wrapped this bookcase in Crates & Pallet’s reclaimed pallet wood.
