Our Family Room’s Great Wall of Built-ins
Okay, well, sorry I didn’t get this out there yesterday… I was crazy busy like a firefighter putting out fires all day yesterday. Don’t you just love those days?…
For example the day included a trip to the doctor, minor visit, nothing important but of course it took over 2 hours, during nap time, with two kids. When we got out of the doctor’s office, the entire car was SPLATTERED with bird poop… Honestly, at first when I saw it, I couldn’t figure out what it was… luckily I didn’t touch it! I am wondering how the bird could have even done that without some sort of fan to distribute it so evenly everywhere on my dark colored car so it looks sorta like polka dots. -Sorry, I am obviously a mom with kids in diapers – poop is a hot topic.
Okay, but really, the reason I am here is to show you the “semi” finals of the built ins. This is what the final project looked like to when we sent it in to Houselogic the last day of September. And promptly went on vacation, cuz we NEEDED a vacation!
But, if you saw the plan for this project, you know it is missing something! Yes, we still had big plans, that we didn’t really get started until about a week ago. The truth is, with all the job craziness, we were kind of thinking we would just move immediately… but hopefully that is off the table as an option now, and we can just finish this house. Which means, that even though we may not get much of a return from this little upgrade, we decided to go ahead an finish the rest of the project…and I am SO happy we are working on it, I am SO happy about how it is coming together.
Remember this is just the *SEMI – Finals* here… it is getting a lot better before long! I mean, like one million percent better (can you tell I like what is happening?) Here are all the pictures.
Here is a crazy compilation of what the wall was looking like… It is a REALLY long wall, and I don’t have any cool lenses to get it all in one shot!
Okay, I know I need to decorate the mantel, but otherwise, I feel like the design of the built-ins works. I love the toy storage under the window seat. I love the built in entertainment center part, for all components and movies. We have plenty of room for games, and holiday décor… it is really coming along!
In case you didn’t see them here are the rest of the posts
Post 3 Finishing up the built ins,
…..and what is to come… well here is a picture of the plan from before… can you see what is missing? (well there are a few things but there is a little more “building” to do… I will show you the plan a.s.a.p.!)
Now that you’ve seen most of the finished product what do you think? If you like it pin it for me!
Wow! The built-ins looks AMAZING! I’m drooling over all of that storage! I’d be SO pumped if you’d come and share this (and any other projects you’d like to show off) at the Head to Head Showdown link party, going on right now at http://www.icantstopcrafting.blogspot.com I hope to see you there! ~Jen
