"Best if used by (or before)" is recommended by the manufacturer for best flavor or quality. This is not a safety date, according to the USDA. If the date says March 15, 2008 and today is March 16, that doesn't automatically mean you have to toss it. The products, in general, are still safe to eat, but some consumers may detect changes in product flavor, color, taste or texture.
Once the paint or stain is completely dry, apply varnish. This will give the shelf a protective finish that minimizes day-to-day wear and tear. If you want the shelf to be glossy, apply a second coat of varnish. You should gently sand the shelf between varnish coats to ensure a smooth finish.
One shelving idea I do like is described as Patent Office Shelving, made by Retrouvius. This is an adjustable shelving system manufactured in cast iron, some provided as single sided and others as double-sided. These shelves retail at around $955.00 so, although they are described as being retail shelving, at that price and given that they are attractive enough, I would use them at home. They would certainly be strong enough to take the weight of most of my books! The Kalusto company sell a good range of attractive shelving, although I certainly would not describe them as being cheap. One wall shelving unit in their range is called the Chicane Wall Hanging Book Shelf, part of the Tonelli Collection. It retails at a cool $1,251.00 - and, when you think these shelves will only take up to 5kg in weight, I think that is a shelf too far!
