Dining Room Bookshelves

Accentuate art and accessories with lighting.

A dining room wall is cleverly turned into a mini-library. Designer Chris Lischkoff disguised vertical ductwork with a built-in bookcase. Shallow shelves in front of the awkward element act as picture rails. Really short on space? Make use of deep window ledges, too.
