Best Space-Saving Wall Shelves for Dolls

This weekend I finally started working on Project "Dolls on All the Walls" that I've been planning for months.  I finally realized that if I wanted to make room for my large collection, I needed to learn to build UP and make use of every bit of vertical and wall space I have.

This is the hallway outside the two bedrooms on our second floor.  To the left is our bedroom, actually the second bedroom, since we switched the doll room and office to the master (the bigger bedroom) at the beginning of the year.  Past the cabinet is the entrance to the shared bathroom, and to the right and a little behind me is the master bedroom, now the doll room and office.

Don't mind the mess in the hall!  This is still a work in progress.

At some point earlier this year, I realized what a huge waste of space these walls were.  So I got the tall, slim cabinet you see here, which doesn't leave much room to go around it, but hey, we're skinny people (and there's another, regular-sized entrance to the bathroom from the master bedroom, ahem, doll room).  I also started planning around that time to put shelves on the wall, and purchased a set of nursery bookshelves for the purpose.

These shelves are awesome.  They're shallow, so you can only fit one row of dolls, but they also don't stick out very far from the wall.  They come in two widths, 15 inches and 24 inches (these are 24 inches).  The bar across the front of the shelves is just enough so that I'm not worried about the dolls toppling out of the shelves without stands holding them in.  And if I turn them diagonally, I can fit five dolls.

Best yet, the shelves are currently 30% off in today's Prime Day Big Deals!

I haven't had a chance to fill the shelves yet, but I'll post pictures once I have (and once I've had a chance to clear out the hallway too)!
