I had this ugly yellow wall in my family room and I was dreaming about a nice bookshelf for ages!
We bought an ol' BILLY BOOKCASE from IKEA. Ya know the simple white one.
We added four pieces of wood panels on the walls ( both sides of the fireplace)
The hub cut the baseboard out from the back wall so the Billy Bookcase could be pushed up against the wall.
It was time to update our circa 2000 Pottery-barn-inspired living room.
The tape on the wall is my faux board & batten trick. First tape out where the MDF board will go.
Board and batten was just the thing to complement our navy & white room. Bye, bye Pottery Barn circa 2000
Just moved in and this was just not going to work. There were cracks and a poor repair job, so I decided to tackle this project.
I used $2 wood strips and concrete nails. I hammered them in at the mortar joints.
