Create stylish displays and savvy storage solutions at the same time with bookshelves, do-it-yourself shelving projects, and more. Shelves can go almost anywhere in your home -- including closets, garages, bedrooms, bathrooms, and more. Take on the trend of open shelving in the kitchen and rip out your upper cabinets and replace them with shelves by following our step-by-step instructions for completing the project. Transform your bookcases and built-ins into gorgeous vignettes with our arranging ideas that incorporate both storage and stylish display. Whether you are organizing a library's worth of books, DVDs, magazines, dishes, toys, or shoes, shelves can be a savvy and versatile solution. And even for things that aren't so conducive to shelving, such as clothing, using baskets and bins to corral these items will keep them organized and accessible. Put shelving to work in your home, from the basement to the attic, from the garage to the playroom, and see your storage be transformed into an organized system that helps you cut clutter and stress less.
