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 Houzz.com:
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.

|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!
