Hi there friends! Thank you all for your amazing insight about my den walls and paint colors. Once I finish the art for the room I think the choice will be more clear. I will definitely keep you posted. Today I wanted talk about my built-ins, they are also getting a little makeover!
When we moved in 6 years ago there was nothing there, just an open space where the builder/owners would have added the shelving but didn’t get around to it. My brother-in-law, who is an amazing carpenter my nice enough to built them for me. At the time, I loved the idea of a simple skirt instead of doors and did so for about a year. But you know, there are always so many other projects to tackle, plus when it was the dining room you could barely see it. Well now there is a full, open view to this beautiful architectural detail and I want it to feel more tailored. I am thinking of adding doors and creating a cool detail on the front of them or making it completely open with some sleek & rustic storage.
Not a very good before but none the less, it gives you the idea….
Whatever I decide, I would also like to add a rolling ladder. I have loved rolling library ladders since I was old enough to dream of my first home. This oldie but goodie adds a ton of character to a space as well as function and they aren’t just for libraries anymore, you can read more HERE.
Have a beautiful weekend!!!
