We just have very little storage and walls in our home. I have no place to put books, or set out family photos. Our TV is now over our fireplace, so there is no entertainment wall unit or built-in for these items.
I can play around in Photoshop pretty well. I decided to take a photo of our family room, and add some images of shelves and cabinets to simulate what I want my husband to build for me.
Here is how the family room looks now.
And this is the picture I created for my Husband with the “cabinets and book shelves” The walls are a nice warm gray – not sure why they came out so salmony-beige in the picture.
We will have to come up with a similar cabinet and shelf system for next to the fireplace to balance out the room (First pic is before we hung the TV) I really don’t like the TV over the fireplace, but there is no other option for the furniture in the room. A TV in the corner next to the fireplace would be impossible to watch.
