New Built-In

18 Feb

As you all know we pretty much changed everything in our house when we got it.  The living room was no exception.  See the empty nook on the right?  When we saw it we knew we wanted a built-in to go inside.

Andrew and his dad, being the building rock stars that they are, decided to take on the task themselves.  They researched how to build it and actually made it happen.

Here’s the Before:

Here’s the After:

Not too shabby, huh?  I am so proud of them.  It looks so good.

There’s still a few tweaks they have to do to it until it’s 100%.   Ignore the bare shelves.  I have not had the opportunity to go vintage shopping to fill them up yet, but don’t worry about that.  I’m sure I wont have any trouble spending some mullah on thrifty stuff.

See those books on the bottom right shelf?  Baggins bought those himself.  They’re so beautiful!

They’re from a second-hand book store.  They even match the color scheme too!  Very proud of Baggos on this one.  He even bought the book ends too.

Love.

Uh oh, we may have another wannabe interior decorator in the house.  Look out thrift stores!

Now I must end this post with a hilarious picture I just realized I’ve had stored in my computer for way too long.  Enjoy the beauty that is my dorky sister.
