Finally! A Blog Post!

Well, it's nice to finally sit down to do this blog post! Even if it is 11:44 p.m! I've finally finished painting the built-ins. Yahoo! Except for some minor touch up painting, but I've already put things on the shelves. I just need to get a couple picture frames for some photos I'd like to put out, but otherwise, I'm done. The picture above is of the right built in. The one on the left is identical. My camera broke, so I had to take the picture with my phone, and it just wasn't coming out very clear if I tried to take a photo of both at the same time.

I think my husband did a fantastic job building these! It's exactly what I wanted! It's so fun to finally be getting the living room set up. It's actually starting to feel more like a home. I'm super duper excited to throw an engagement party for my brother and his fiance on Saturday. It should be a lot of fun.

I know that this project took longer than my husband expected, but it was totally worth it! I also got some more things done on my list, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. I need to go to bed!!


  1. They look fabulous! Did you use beadboard in the back and on the doors?

  2. We did! It just gives them more of a cottage type feel. I found the mirror above the fireplace for a STEAL on Craig's List and got the curtains a while ago on clearance from I put a little distressed finish dresser that I bought 8 years ago at a consignment shop next to the chair. It was nice to be able to dig out all the little treasures I've had boxed up for a while and display them on the shelves, especially the milk glass. I'll have to post a picture of the other side too.

  3. Wow, it looks wonderful! Your husband is a talented builder & I love your decorating!!
