aaron and i have more books than we know what to do with in our home. i guess there are worse problems to have, but we’re constantly in need of good storage for our expanding library. so whenever i see a fun book-storage option i get excited to see if it’s something that might pass ‘the ac test’. and i have a feeling these new ‘dirty shelves‘ from ref-use design might make the grade.
ref-use makes furniture out of recycled plywood bound for landfills, using only non-toxic/low VOC paints and finishes. their new shelving units can be hung with the even side up for any thing you would normally put on a shelf, or they can be hung with the uneven side up for built-in book end. i love the look and think it would be great for an area where you’d like to have access to books on display, but aren’t looking to house an entire collection. click here for more info on ref-use and the dirty shelves. thanks, adam!
