Cool design

I follow the BoingBoing blog and yesterday it drew my attention to this piece of book-related furniture. It isn't real books, but carton paper printed to look like stacked books. It's sold to be used as a stool or a table. It reminds me of a sculpture made of books that's in the Reykjavík city library.

Others have given this idea a different spin by specially designing furniture, for example tables and chairs, to double as bookcases.

What I would like to do is to turn an existing piece of furniture into a bookcase, while still retaining the original function. If you have come across an example of this, please post a link in the comment section.
