Bookcase Shelves
Laurey W. Glenn

Shelf Space

Shelves provide storage and display decorative items. Two slightly recessed glass shelves--which allow light from the recessed fixture to filter down to the lower shelves--were used at the top to highlight cherished pewter pieces, a gold-framed etching, and a porcelain bowl. The lower ones contain textured baskets, which are practical and portable enough to hold mail, magazines, and books.

Tip: It's good to include an electrical outlet on a shelf.
