I love our living room with its hardwood floors, big fireplace and picture window, but it was lacking. The expansive walls on either side seemed to be calling for some white built-in bookshelves.
I contracted with a finish carpenter to install some built-in bookshelves with wine storage. The space on either side wasn’t even, so the wine storage helped balance things out.
We cleared out a lot of our books when we moved from our condo to the house a few years back, so we don’t have a lot of books to put on the shelves. I’m sure we’ll be able to fill them up in no time. I have some great black and white photos that a friend took, that I’m planning to put on either side of the fireplace in black frames.
So, what do you think?
