If you’re into video games and you’re into shelves, you’ve probably run across these in one form or another. The problem? These (the unpainted ones) are $700. These, with the colored backings, are $1,300. Plus shipping. Or, I believe you can order them for $120 per block. For the record, for $120 you can easily [...]

No, you haven’t died and gone to Heaven. Needing a place to “store his large book collection,” the owner of this 560 square foot Japanese home turned to the Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio, who covered essentially every available wall with shelves. The only thing that could make this house more awesome is if there were [...]

GWH did a terrific job of utilizing the space he had available, and the finished product looks completely professional. So good, in fact, that I once threatened to kidnap Mr. Hunter, chain him up in [...]
Yesterday, Destri over at The Mother Huddle demonstrated upgrading a cheap set of shelves by adding trim to them. It’s definitely a topic I’ve been wanting to cover, and since hers came out better than mine I decided to show off hers instead. The first thing Destri did was pick up these cheap (and cheap [...]
When reader Tom (MachineGex) saw this oddly-shaped corner in his game room, he did what any of us would do — he squeezed some custom shelves in there to display his massive collection of Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games! From Tom: “The NES shelf is actually two separate shelves. If you look at the bottom, [...]
