Hello everyone, I know you have all been waiting to see our finished built-in.Click here for my original story. Just a few days ago Robert gave me the green light, the paint was dry enough and I could have my way with our new built-in. Tucked away in the corner of our office I transformed this eyesore niche seen below into a striking built-in.

( office built-in after)
Stunning bead board details grace this custom built-in. I designed it with a spacious desk top work station, perfect for a computer/study area, etc.
I merchandised the built-in with lovely vintage antique items, mostly collected from flea markets and garage sales. These items include old encyclopedias, cast iron pulley, vintage inspired clock, personalized worn leather suitcases, basket from France, etc. So far this is what I’ve come up with, and I will keep adding to it, of course. We haven’t yet installed lighting, I will also be on the look-out for an industrial style desk lamp.
Seen below is the canvas art I hung inside our built-in, it’s a world map that depicts one of Christopher Columbus’ three ships hung on a retractable rod. The inspiration came form Restoration Hardware’s retractable military world map $ 639.00. I duplicated the same idea for $220.00. not bad eh?
I did my thing, and there is only one way to describe this floor-to-ceiling built-in
TALL DARK AND HANDSOME !!!!!!!
