This is the what our living room built-in bookcase looked like when we first bought our house.
And here's what it looks like now.
We removed the bottom shelf to allow for taller items. Eventually I would like to have an electrical outlet installed so I can put a lamp on the bottom shelf.
We also painted the inside wall a bright burnt orange color to coordinate with the living room colors.
Here are my Pottery Barn design books and framed locket necklace that I carried on my wedding bouquet.
A few more decorative items. All found on clearance at Home Goods. The "8" jar was purchased on My Sweet Savannah's etsy shop.
A nice pop of color when you first walk into our home :)
