I finally finished decorating the shelves around the fireplace so I thought I would share....
Whenever I have a bunch of empty shelves I aways think I need a lot of "Stuff" and end up overfilling them. Eventually I always end up removing items and being surprised by how much better it looks. It's just a personal preference but I guess I like my shelves to be on the "sparse" and "clean looking" side.
Here's a closer look at what's going on in the shelves.
I covered the books with a roll of white butcher paper I found at Hobby Lobby, then I labeled the spines. For the books below - I bought them at a thrift store for a buck each then ripped the covers off and stacked them up!
This last weekend my husband got the TV on the right side of the shelves on a swivel arm so it can be pulled out and shifted to lots of different viewing angles.
P.S. I loved the detail on covered books :thumbup:
