Hi Friends~

My previous post showed the beginning stage of our master bedroom's built-in bookcase.  We had been contemplating different options for this space for a year now, and finally decided on a custom book case and tv piece after being inspired by this photo from

I was originally thinking we could install a fireplace with a flat screen mounted on top but
1) It's WAY more expensive, and
2) You have to worry about the heat of the fireplace rising and damaging the TV.


I know it's not 100% finished, but I couldn't help but sharing the progress...!  Thanks to our handyman Paul for bringing our vision to life.

Stage 1

Stage 2

Stage 3

Ta Da...Stage 4!

Mantle is actually a shelf from Pottery Barn we purchased for $60 (verse $300+ for an actual mantle)

Hidden drawer for the DirectTV box and all of the cords
It got Charlotte's approval too :) 
Did you notice the CARPET finally came up too??

Alright, enough pictures for one night.  It's just so fun to make progress.  I'll post more pictures once we paint the unit and move furniture into our room.

Tomorrow is also a big day at our house...can't wait to share "before" and "after" pics tomorrow night!
