Bringing New Life to the Built-Ins (again)
Hello there! You might have noticed that the walls, and the brick weren’t the only things that got a little paint love in our family room. The built-ins also received some in the form of color this time!
Several years back I transformed the built-ins from ugly-orange-oak to a beautiful almost white. I loved them, but knowing everything else was going to be almost white I wanted to add some color in somewhere. I have pinned so many images of bookshelves with the backs painted, so I decided this would be a great place to add a hint of color. Nothing too bold – just some navy blue (the same navy blue I used for the feature wall in our master bedroom). 🙂
Here they are before.
And here they are after paint.
And after things got returned to the shelves.
I re-styled a few things while I was at it as well. After 13 years of living with these built-ins, I’m still not great at styling them, but I do feel like it’s getting easier.
The next steps for the family room include wood and fabric. Stay tuned! 🙂
