I knew that when I moved into my place and set up my built-in units that I'd lose an entire wall. But no worries, I embraced the space by using the actual book shelves as a platform for my frames. (a look that I have seen many times and love - like in Grant K. Gibson's stylish space above that he designed for one of his clients - loooooove this room)
I just used two small nails to hang a few frames and now have a little be of extra dimension and a cool way to break up the lines a bit of all that shelving. Super easy and I think it looks pretty cool - makes my small space feel good.
