After our third trip to the beach last summer I decided that this is where I am meant to be…
|This is my happy place 🙂|
But since this blog is new, I thought I would rewind a little and share with you where I started a few months ago.
You can see on the bottom where I tested a couple of paint colors before I found one I liked. I ended up choosing Glidden Antique White. I went with the paint+primer because there was no way I was sanding all of that and I wanted to save a step. You can see how dark it is and that is with the lights on. (Forgive my photography skills, still learning how to use my camera.) By the way there is another built-in just like this on the other side of the room.
So, I started painting… (I did not sand anything, just cleaned it all really good)

Put 'em on your Christmas list! A paint gun was my b-day gift last year. We're not normal girls. 🙂 You are so smart! I love that you moved your tv to the built-in and the room looks a million times better with the white paint! Oh, and I love your inspiration photo for the drapes!

I thought just painting it was daring enough but then you sawed the shelves and then rejigger them somehow. Clever you.
