Books, books and more books! I've always wanted to have a high-ceilinged room with books from floor to ceiling. so high in fact, that you need one of those slidey-ladders to reach the uppermost shelves.
My boyfriend and I wanted a short but long DVD rack. All the ones in stores are tall. We finally built one. This one is about 2 and half foot tall. Each shelf is about 7.5", enough for a DVD. It's only about 5" wide, so it's pretty low profile as well.
