Stick a fork in 'em, they are D-O-N-E. The never-ending tale of the Billy Bookcase Fake Out has come to an end, peeps. From painting to molding to now styling (when did that become the fancy new word for decorating - kinda like the whole 'chevron aka zigzag' thing), these puppies are lookin' good!
I had a plan for a Family Room Makeover.
I sold our old ginormous sectional. Bought new couches.
Rearranged the entire layout of the room.
Had the TV mounted to another wall and placed the fireplace under it (it's electric, it can move;).
Painted the fireplace white.
Bought 2 Billy Bookcases from IKEA to flank the fireplace, give it a built-in feel (hopefully!).
Painted them. Added molding to beef them up. Added accessories and now my dream has come to reality.
Here's what I started with...
Here's what I have today...
Oh, and can I just tell you how thrilled I am that we've solved the Cable Box Dilemma?! The one we've battled ever since we got this fireplace about 4 years ago?!
Check out the DVD player, in the opposite bookcase at the bottom...
I'm just loving the way my vision is coming to life.
You might recognize that I got the THANKS glasses out on the mantel again this year.
So that's the final chapter of the Billys. Can't wait to show you the entire room. Just a couple more things to cross off the list and I'll show you! I'm so excited!
