The look of this one of a kind book shelf was inspired by old grand libraries – think cavernous ceilings, chunky woodwork, and brass hand rails! The louvered “shelves” were inspired by the look of an old barn vent. Made from old wood, these shelves have been installed inside an opening where panels were removed from a door. Add your own hand painted initials to this unique piece and provide a great way to stash your family’s current reads in personalized style!
