Well, here's a sneak peek (of just one part of a whole wall of bookcases).
They would be done, but a couple of the cabinet doors cracked in shipment. We have to wait another 6 weeks for new doors to arrive, but I'm still so glad I decide to have cabinets built on the bottom. I went back and forth on this for awhile. I love the look of floor to ceiling open shelves. In practicality though my hub has a lot of stuff (and it ain't pretty to look at), so I think it's best for that stuff to stay behind closed doors. Even the printer fits inside the bottom cabinets!
I'm still deciding on hardware for these doors.
Maybe by the time the replacement doors show up I'll finally be done tweaking these shelves.
Probably not though. They already look different, and I took these pictures less than 12 hours ago.
My best advice when you're working on any arrangement is to take a picture and examine it. You see things so differently when you're looking at a picture than when you're staring at a space in real life. It's also good to walk away. Arrange a little, then walk away and do something else, then come back in and arrange a little more. You'll have fresh eyes, and fresh eyes are always better. Last - you can always text a picture to a design loving friend. New eyes can be even better than fresh eyes!
One last little sneak peek......
I finished wallpapering! I promise to give you a full rundown. It was a whole lot easier than I thought it would be! And the new curtain panels arrived last week. I had a credit to use at Pottery Barn so I splurged on velvet panels! Me likey!
Okay - more to come - I promise!
