attic shelves

attic shelves, originally uploaded by Jrome.

A few weeks ago I added three shelves to the attic. These are built-ins and affixed securely to the floor, each other and the wall, making double duty as a solid, contemporary, balustrade. The two pictured here hold much of our home record collection. The one around the corner holds Nicole's work library and binders she uses.

The tops I'm not decided on yet. If all goes according to plan, they'll be concrete. If not according to plan, they'll be maple block.

The floor will always be sub-flooring with rugs. We're going cheap chic for this work/storage area. It will be nice, but never "OMG I love the floors!" kind of space.

Jrome - Go for cork floors. Super easy to install (glue and press), absorb sound (for when yous a-rockin'), and they're nice n' squishy (fer the chilluns). I believe they're reasonable to, and you can install over sub floor. Our kitchen in the old house had 'em.
