BEFORE AND AFTER: LIVING ROOM BOOKCASE

THESE HOMEOWNERS WERE LOOKING FOR A MORE ORGANIZED BOOKCASE TO HOUSE THEIR BOOKS AND FAMILY PICTURES.....BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, TO LOOK GREAT!
HERE'S THE BEFORE......


..... IT IS SO EASY GET A CLUTTERED LOOK BY MISTAKE! I LIKE TO PUT "LIKE" THINGS TOGETHER AND IT SEEMS TO HELP ELIMINATE THE LOOK OF CLUTTER.
THE RESULT? A CLEAN AND EASY TO LOOK AT BOOKCASE!!
THE AFTER......
WE ADDED A FEW THINGS.....4 BOXWOOD TOPIARIES ADDED WARMTH AND MAKE GREAT FILLERS.
COLOR COORDINATING BOOKS REALLY HELPS WITH THE COHESIVENESS!
WE ALSO FOUND SOME BRUSHED BRASS MATTED FRAMES....NEW PICTURE FRAMES ADDED AN INSTANT UPDATE!!

AND I LOVE FOR EACH SHELF TO BE SPECIAL....AND DIFFERENT ENOUGH FROM THE SHELVES ABOVE AND BELOW....

ITS OKAY TO MIX SILVER AND GOLD!!!


AND HERE'S A SNEAK PEAK OF SOME MORE EXCITING STUFF GOING ON ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROOM!
