How To Hang Art On a Bookcase And Still Have Access To The Books

Now that I finished my side project of updating my library, I am back to fixing the functionality of the craft area in my office.

One of the big issues I have with this room is a lack of wall space.  Since it’s in the bonus room over the garage, the top part of the walls are angled, so the straight part of the wall is only 5 feet high.  And I have already used most of that wall space with storage solutions for my fabric rolls and fabric ladder.

That means I had to get creative in finding spaces to hang things.  And since I have so many bookcases in this space, I started to think of ways that I could use the front of the shelves as vertical wall space.

I have always loved the look of bookcases with art hung on them, like this living room I found on housebeautiful.com (design by Alex Hitz. Photography by Lisa Romerein.)  But I have never done it because I thought it would be too hard to get at the books behind the picture.  And certainly in my office / craft room, I need to be able to get at the things on my shelves!

Which means?  A perfect opportunity for a DIY project…to hang art on a bookcase and still have easy access to the books.  Keep reading to find out how.
