So after pinning my life away on pinterest, I found several different ideas for inspiration but nothing was quite exactly what I wanted... until I saw this gorgeous piece from Ethan Allen:
Suddenly I head the heavens open up and the angels sing, "Hallelujah!" Okay, not really but that's how excited I was. HOLY. COW. It is beautiful. So, we got drafting and plotting. Here comes the best part. I had to run into my mom's attic the next day for a costume and saw some cabinet pieces lurking out from behind some boxes.
She had these extra cabinets and door fronts wasting their lives away in her attic from an order they had placed where the color was done wrong. So, they had to re-do them but my parents had to keep the first set. They had tried to sell them at a garage sale, but had no luck?!?! Needless to say I became her yard sale buyer and we get to use them as a part of our design. They look just like the Ethan Allen one also. So my friends, here's a rough sketch of what we're (as in my dear sweets along with my inspiring words of encouragement) building:
Pictures of the end result and hopefully a detailed tutorial of what
Have any of you done any built in/ entertainment units in your home? Want to share some words of wisdom? Anything you wish you would have included for storage? I hope I've covered all my bases here...
