Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
Put a shelf over a window and use the shelf brackets to hold a curtain rod- genius and beautiful AND gives a completely finished off look. I like the idea of having a shelf over the window in the kitchen or bedroom.
