Ceiling bookshelf

What Houzz contributors are saying:

From a purely technical perspective, I wouldn't imagine that bookshelves on the ceiling would work. But aren't they great?

Short on wall storage? Use your ceiling as a bookshelf!
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Tapping Into The Hidden Storage Space In Your Home
If your home is starting to bear a strong resemblance to the bookstore around the corner, 1. I'm jealous, and 2. here's a unique way to acquire some additional storage. The idea of getting rid of even one book pains me to no end. So head for the rafters and get creative!
