Love this idea for between kitchen and living room/. Interiorstyledesign: Often wasted and unused space, this hallway was converted into a mini library with the addition of rustic wood bookshelves. (via A Touch of Rustic Design
We love everything about this window-filled corner, not to mention the view. The picture window maximizes the view, while the double-hungs give ventilation. We also love the low built-in book cases that have function as window seats.
Not sure what I think about using lighting in side the cabinets in the craft room. Maybe glass front cabinets on top of it? I tend to put small lamps into book shelves. So we are going to need outlets in the bookshelves. Any bookshelves in the house.
