Staircase bookshelf - How would you reach the books? I can just see my daughter climbing up there to get Dr. Seuss.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
I am thinking of doing something similar, but am wondering how do you reach the out of reach shelves?

I was JUST thinking that the kneewall that overlooks the foyer from the upstairs "toy area" would be a good place to store all of the kids' thousands of books they have (but on the inside toy area of the wall, not the side you see as you go up the stairs. Our foyer is too formal to do this on the side you see, plus our staurs go up straight, so they wouldn't be accessible anyways because the kneewall is part of the foyer that goes up cathedral style. So it would only be good on the other side of the kneewall in the toy/"gathering room."
