This idea for a bookshelf room divider is such an easy and inexpensive way to divide two spaces. When we saw it blogged on The Little House in the City, we remembered thinking it was great when we first saw it in Martha Stewart Living.
Just stack two short, wide bookcases on top of one another to separate rooms, or areas of rooms. In these photos, the top bookcase faces the dining area and holds dishes. On the other side, in the entryway, hooks have been attached to its back. Sliding doors were attached to the bottom bookcase.
