Books, books and more books! I've always wanted to have a high-ceilinged room with books from floor to ceiling. so high in fact, that you need one of those slidey-ladders to reach the uppermost shelves.
So Smart = Crown Molding Shoe Shelves - perfect space saver storage. base pine base molding and crown molding + white spray paint. Wood glue crown on to base molding, nail to hold in place while drying, spray paint, install w/ 2 screws onto wall studs.
