Finished Built Ins

The trim has been put into place and the built in cabinets and shelving are complete.  I guess now all I have to do is head to Home Goods and get some more stuff for our shelving.  We took full advantage of our former neglected space and spent the time watching the WVU football game on Saturday as you can tell from the pictures below.  All around this project cost approximately $1,200 and half of that went to the work the electrician completed.   Considering I cannot even buy a media console from Pottery Barn for that amount we are pretty happy.  Now there is plenty of toy storage available for Wynn to use.

Rob used piano hinges at the top of the shelving on the left to hide all of the cords coming from the basement and to the television. That way he can open the top of the ceiling in the shelving to access the cords whenever he needs to and not rip everything out of the wall.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
