Add lighting: Creating an eye catching display can be as easy as adding lighting to the shelving. Backlit items, overhead lighting, or even candlelight can draw focus to certain spots. Running stringed lights along edges or behind can give an overall glow to your shelves.
As you are emptying your shelves be honest with yourself. What do you really need to keep? Can you make a donation or yard sale box of books that you will truly never look at again?
Small adjustable shelves can be built between the studs and provide great storage space for small items such as jars, cans, bottles and for organizing and storing screws and nails. These storage spaces are built by attaching a series of 1x2 wood strips horizontally to the inside edges of two adjacent studs, approximately six inches apart. Also cut some 1x4 and 1x6 pieces of lumber, slip them on top of the 1x2 where they should fit between the studs very nicely.
