Most people's front doors open to a pretty foyer with some sort of console table ready to organize this and that. Well, don't have a console table. I have a bookshelf that has been in my room since I was 17. This bookshelf was moved on over into the house right after I moved in and has sat in the same place, the bare wall that you see when you come in the house.
