I decided to make use of a hidden corner by adding above the doors a set of bookshelves. In the end I actually took down the one running along the right – in the room it just felt like too much and we actually didn’t have as many books as I initially thought. I love how now that corner has a cozy feeling, where before it was just the last stop on the way out!
For this project – 1 1×6 cut to size (to give you an idea, you can get 8 feet of this pine at Home Depot for $5), a dash of whatever paint, and 2 5×6 brackets (78 c each). Total cost, assuming you have some paint, around $8. I am going to make use of the leftover wood by putting another one of these above the door at the end of the hallway. So many places to cozy books!

Here is a much better picture of the corner, using a proper camera!
