I'm going to give the hidden door bookshelf a try (not first time I've seen similar on Houzz so not first time I've considered it). Already picked out four possibilities in the not-very-big house. Like all the images except that wallpaper. Clever for a minute but not liveable. Very nice article.

What perfect timing! We have decided to turn our library into a dining room to make it cozier and a place you want to linger. We live in a 1900 farmhouse and the room is long and narrow and a perfect place for the long narrow oak table and chairs I recently found on craigslist for $350! I am so excited to see all the designs in this article and to feel validated for my ideas! Thank you!
