Since living at the beach house for the last couple of weeks it’s becoming clear the things we need to finish up. Some of the rooms are so close to being done. The living room for example is looking great besides the fact that the builder is still yet to put the T.V. mounted in the wall. He built us a unit that will go inside the wall with doors so the T.V. can be hidden when no one is watching it. In our nice white and bright beach house who wants to see a big television screen? Not me!
We are hoping that project will get finished in the next couple weeks but in the mean time I’m ready to get some bookcases up on either side of the fire place. I’ve been going back and forth about the style. Do I want it open back or close back? Weathered wood or weathered gray wood? Metal rods on the outside or not? I know that our price range is on the lower side, we don’t want to spend a fortune on these bookcases.
The need for bookcases in our space is obviously for storage and to add balance on either side of the fireplace. But also to add some personal touches like family photos, decorative items, things we collect from the beach and so on. I thought it would be fun to search online for some low price bookcases that look high end! Isn’t that always the goal anyway? 😉
Since the room is painted white, all white bookcases are OUT… I want something that will pop off the wall, I love using weathered wood tones so I definitely want something in that family. Our light fixture and the stone tile has gray in it so I’m also opened to something with gray too.
