    I think I would have painted the bricks white, also. Everything else is great!

    I'd like to suggest you put some back support on the top, front edge of the unit. Then have the ceiling cove molding run across the front of the built-in units instead of leaving the open space above the units. That will make the units truly look "built in" instead of pushed against the end wall.
