Here's what the room looked like before with our big blank wall.
Progress picture- this image shows when we put the cabinet bases down. Steve made all the cabinet bases and he had to do some wiring for the sconces. We also had to take down the crown molding and baseboard trim to make room for the built-ins.
The five bookshelves ready for their backs to be put on.
Here it is without all the books...
Steve and I worked together to make these bookshelves and we love how they turned out. After looking at a bunch of different bookshelf ideas, we decided to paint them white. The wall color is Dovetail by Shermin Williams and the white is white trim paint (we just matched the paint with the trim). Have any of you ever built something that you feel so proud of at the end of a big project? I would love to hear about it. I'll get down to the nitty-gritty tomorrow for some details on how we made our built-ins.
