before + after: my corner built-ins
It’s time I started keeping up with posting finished projects around my house, so first up are my corner built-ins in our family room! You might remember this is how we watched TV for the first year we were in our home:
You can’t really tell in the photo below, but this was a tricky spot because one wall was 60 inches, while the joining wall was 72, making planning for an evenly spaced corner unit difficult. Because of the vaulted ceiling, we also couldn’t bring the shelves all the way to the ceiling:
Here is the finished space now-I love how it has completely opened up the room and the added storage beneath is definitely a plus! We added Shaker style doors below to match our kitchen cabinetry and I backed the shelves with beadboard, run horizontally for an unexpected touch. I still need to add hardware to the doors, but I’m super excited with the turnout:
I painted them to match the cabinets and trim throughout our home – Sherwin Williams Extra White. We get a lot of light in this part of our house and the white looks so clean and crisp:
I change around the shelves probably on a weekly basis. I chalk it up to my OCD, and the fact that I like to rotate things in and out constantly, but it drives my husband crazy! This is what they are looking like this week:
I love the chunky molding we picked to top it off:
Hope you’re having a great week!
