A show of hands please. . . .
We have been the proud owners of our crib for nine years. The office has a large niche, and it could be used as a closet, but that would be too closed in and boring for my taste. Huummmmm bead board?
My dearest friend Jennifer at The Old painted Cottage is quite familiar with bead board and has chosen it for several surfaces around her stunning cottage. She’s even thought about it on the ceiling. All this talk about bead board has really got me thinking! . . .
Now comes the fun part, convincing Robert with my plan of action. That he of course, will think is absolutely insane! lol “Honey, would you be up for build a shelving unit in the office????” “grumble… grumble… I am not a finish carpenter.” “That’s ok, we’ll just try to wing it, what do you think?” “grumble … grumble…Why don’t we just hire a carpenter?” “Because we can be proud that we built it ourselves.” “ What did you have in mind? Only if you keep it simple.” hee hee Simple doesn’t exist in a designers vocabulary. hee hee
Our new built in shelving unit (87”X 9’) will have, Yep, you guessed it bead board on the back surface and much much more too. I can hardly wait to begin!

Proposed moldings for our new built in shelf unit. Unless of course, I change my mind, that I’ve been know to do. :-)
I designed the built in unit to house three floating shelves, with enough space in-between left so I can merchandise them with larger scale items.
The first lower shelf Robert installed at desk height. This gives us the option of additional desk space if needed and with a swivel chair we can use both our desk surface and shelf in the built in. You can never have to much desk space.
The corbels were a garage sale find, wish I had a few more.
Stick around, this weekend will install the moldings on the fronts of the shelf's. Cant wait to share with you!
Do you have a vision of how you would like your home to look?
Do you need help putting it in motion?
