Hi Friends! A few years ago I had a built-in bookcase made from a 1970's style "wet-bar" in our family room. Thanks to a bit of creativity on my part and a fantastic carpenter, this lovely bookcase became a reality for us. The back of the shelves are beadboard, with some great detailing on the posts. :)
However, the other day I was looking at it, and it looked pretty disheveled...like so:
The surface was piled with random objects, books and just a few of the charging cords that seem to lurk all over the house (argh)...
So I took a few minutes, removed a few things and found proper homes for the others and within about 15 minutes it looked like this:
I know nothing of restyling shelves. I realize that these could look even more awesome and coordinated, but frankly I have never understood the need to go purchase things for shelves just so that they look pretty: aren't they REALLY made to be functional?
Big payoff for a small bit of my time...
Thanks for reading!
