One of my most favorite bookcases ever was built using an old wood door as the sides. Inspired by an example at My Repurposed Life, I built this bookcase and painted it a very vibrant pink. I sold it as soon as I posted a photo of it on Facebook, and it lives with a good friend of mine. Old doors can be found rather inexpensively at flea markets, thrift stores, or a Habitat for Humanity ReStore!

This is another favorite bookcase… I love the curved stretcher at the top and the drawers at the bottom. The Bombay Bookcase can be built as a pair or even as a triple to fill a wall space and add tons of storage!

Here is another interesting bookcase that can also double as a room divider… The Cube Bookcase features cubes constructed of plywood that can be painted one color with frames separating each cube that can be painted or stained a different color for a really interesting effect!

The Stately Bookcase is a huge piece of furniture with doors on the bottom creating a very beautiful piece of storage! A fabulous collection of dinnerware could also be displayed in this beauty, and the bookcase can be fitted to an area to resemble a built-in.

The Reclaimed Bookcase Divider is another piece that can be used to separate two spaces yet keep books or “collections” completely organized!  This bookcase would be a great piece to store dinnerware in a small space or as storage in a kiddo’s room…
