I know what you’re going to say… How’s the house coming along? My answer: Slowly.
The last month has been wonderful, getting settled in. Grilling dinner just about every night, hanging out, and loving life. Normally I would feel a sense of guilt for taking it so easy, but then I remember that we went from wedding planning straight into packing and moving. A month of reprieve was well deserved and much appreciated!
Now that I’m ready to jump into home improvement, I thought I would get my feet wet with a smaller project – styling the built-in bookshelf. To be honest, I was preparing for this to take the whole day. A bookshelf can be more complicated than it sounds. Yes, I am being totally serious.
I wanted the bookshelf to be functional (similar subject matter grouped together) but aesthetic and artistic too. Here are some images I used as “research”.
And now… Before.
Surprisingly it only took me 2 hours. The first of what will likely be MANY configurations.
