Your wall looks great! We just completed something very similar with the Besta Collection from
Ikea. I can't wait to share your pics with my husband. We picked up all our pieces from Ikea Memorial Day (our first trip = 47 boxes),lol, and completed the project July 4th. After several add'l trips it is now complete with added shelving, lighting, etc. We are so pleased with our newly "built in" wall unit!
with a little creativity, a nail gun, old fencing and paint I was able to create my potting bench using what I had on hand. You can read about the details at: http://shelstringblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/b...
We have been slowly remodeling our home over the last year. We had a (fake) stacked stone surround with an out of proportion tall mantle around a small firebox. My husband took down the mantle along with the surround and lowered it 10" and reinstalled it. We then had a tile guy replace the stone with a beautiful marble tile. Tomorrow we have our new flat screen tv installed above. We didn't have any shelving but it certainly updated our space!
