Get Organized With Built-ins!

Design OCD
by Design OCD
I am super excited about the latest update in my office: built-in shelves along with crown molding for the entire room! It's always remarkable to me how much of a difference crown molding makes! We had a friend who is a master carpenter build shelves out on both sides of the window.
The shelves were built in the garage and then transferred upstairs and attached to the wall. The bottom of the built-ins are actually kitchen upper wall cabinets. I chose upper cabinets because of their 12 inch depth. For shelf spacing, the first shelf is at 24 inches above the base cabinet, the second shelf is 12.5 inches above the first, the third shelf is 11.5 inches above the second and, the top shelf is at 6 inches.

    This workspace looks just amazing! I'm a freelance writer from , and I have my own workspace at home. But you really amazed me by this article. It looks perfect, but how do you feel about too much of light from sun in your room? Does it makes some troubles for you?

    As for me it's impossible to work when sun lights right in your eyes.

    And because of that i bought shutters in a Walmart that placed close to my house.

    How do you fix this problem? Maybe you have some tips about that?
