DIY project for a rainy summer day.

When you want to update your apartment, condo or office, think about transforming an open bookshelf.  We all need storage, but when the items start to increase in number, your space can get cluttered. This is especially handy for people who NEED to have office storage in the dining room or bedroom, but would love to conceal it.  Here, courtesy of Better Home & Gardens, a roller shade is inserted into the top of a bookcase, and pulls down to hide files and supplies. The linen shade works well with the sisal area rug. Make your own shade with readily available kits, and cover with fabric, paint and stencils and even wallpaper!
