New Hampshire Home Stager, Transforming My New Home - Built-In Bookcases


In a recent post, The New Hampshire Home Stager Bait & Switch, I promised to share photos from the transformation of my new home.

In case you missed it:  Dining Room Living RoomMaster Bed & Bath, Kitchen

 

One of the more dramatic improvements we've made so far is in the family room.

One thing that drives me crazy is lots of exposed wires.  We've always housed our TV's in armoires for that reason...to hide all the wires and "stuff".

Making the decision to mount our tv to the wall in this house presented a challenge.  After a couple of days of looking at bookcases and TV cabinets to hold the cable box, surround sound amp, speakers, etc.....and not finding anything we liked,

Rick came up with a brilliant idea.

hole in the wall

He cut through the wall to create built-in shelves.  The family room is in the basement and the other side of this wall is the utility room.

Now all the wiring is out of sight and still easily accessible....

and we have some book shelves!

And for those of you following along....Yes, the family room is painted  Ben Moore Thunder.

Janice:  Thank you!  I'm sure we could have mounted to the wall and hidden the wires inside the wall and ran them to a cabinet under the tv like most people, but I really wanted some shelves.  I am very happy with Rick's solution.

Lydie:  Well now I am going to be wondering if you use it....you better let me know if you do!

Hi Sharon...Love the bookcases.  Having two really makes a difference.  I'm enjoying all of your transformations.
