Love the backing of the bookshelf would paint the actual bookcase a different color! DIY Country Decor: Pallet Bookcase Tutorial Maybe a way to sturdy up the cheap book shelves from Target and Walmart or Ikea.
DIY DOOR MAT: Glue Gun, Scissors, River Rocks at the dollar Store! and Shelf Liner (or mat) in a matching color. So great - it's hard to find a door mat that is large enough to go in front of the door with out looking rinky-dink and stupid :)
