If you've got kids, chances are the books they read are some of the better-designed objects in your house, but you'll never know that if you keep them library-style on a shelf. Add some glitz to your child's room with a simple shelf hack.
At IKEA Hacker, Becca outlines a why-didn't-I-think-of-that? approach: add a bar to your shelf so you can display books library-style, making the room more attractive and encouraging more reading in the family. That would work with pretty much any shelf, not just an IKEA one, of course. For more bookshelf fun, check out how to turn a bookshelf into a secret passage.
