Before & after: blank wall to built-ins! Swipe to see the evolution.
The area surrounding our fireplace was a big empty wall when we moved in a few months ago. I never really entertained the idea of being able to have built-ins here because the stairway is just to the left of the fireplace, & I thought having them would provide too much of a stairway hindrance.
Then about a month after moving in, I was perusing @facebookmarketplace & found very shallow (just 6 inches deep), custom, built-in bookshelves someone was taking off their wall to sell. It was love at first “what if these could work?!”
And special thanks to Jess @carcabaroad for the Smart TV art hack idea! This portrait is actually just a @youtube art channel! If you turn your resolution down, it will look less like a screen and voila: fine art framed nicely in your home! Today we found out our baby is apparently a lover of the arts. Who knew!? 😉 - 9 hours ago
