Book Shelves

When I moved to my new apartment, I started looking for book shelves for my tons of craft books. I have so many knitting, crochet, spinning, and sewing books I needed bookshelves that would not buckle under the weight.  Every thing I found was too expensive or just was not strong enough to hold everything. I loved the utilitarian look of the Kenzo Shelf at One King's Lane for $1300 but I wanted a whole wall of bookshelves and I couldn't buy one shelf at that price.

So how do I get the look without giving up an arm or a leg?  In one word -- Lowe's.  Lowe's has the same look of the more expensive shelves for a fraction of the price ($70).  I know I could have painted the metal and shelves but I like this look just fine.  The best part is, besides the price, each shelf can hold 800 lbs.
