They always look nice.
They are great for balance and symmetry, plus you can have fun decorating them!
Thank you for your input. Can't wait until mine are done.
Do you have a specific question or would you like some ideas?
Hi Bonnie - Hubby and one of his pals decided to take on the project to build these built-in book cases. You can see the before and after and DIY. Hometalk even featured it. They aren't by the fireplace, but still hope this helps with some inspiration! Hugs, Holly
Continuing from previous reply: and overall look and feel of yours.
We did built-ins that I LOVE with a window seat in the middle :) Here's the link - https://www.justmeasuringup.com/built-in-bookshelves/
Wish I had a place to put a window seat. I love yours. Exactly what O would want if I had the area for it.
