If you’re lucky enough to have two floors of living space, why not make bookshelves out of your stairs? You can make them out of the stairs themselves, mount bookshelves along the wall adjacent to the stairs, or use the space under the stairs for book storage.
Grab some simple L brackets (2 per shelf you want to create) and screw them into the wall. Place your books on top, and voila! If you want to make the L brackets invisible, you can screw them into the inside of a book, but that means destroying a book (which I’m not a fan of).
Use one or two ladders (positioned right-side-up or up-side-down) to create a bookshelf by laying planks of wood across the rungs. You can also mount a ladder on the wall against the corner of a room and store your books between the now vertical rungs.
Belts & Rope
Lastly, you can use belts or rope to connect wood planks and create hanging bookshelves. Simply find a few belts (or the rope of your choice) and some worn wood planks. Nail the belts into the sides and under the plank(s) (depending on how many shelves you want), and nail your belt straps to the wall!

"I can't say enough about John and Ashleys combined knowledge, experience and integrity. When they sold us our house they were able to respond quickly and show me the property. They guided us through the short sale process and were able to negotiate an $18K dollars off the banks asking price. IF you want an agent that works Real Estate as a professional and not just a hobby, then I think you should call John and Ashley. You'll be happy that you did. "
