Back again today with another post from my parents living room makeover! Today I wanted to go a little more in depth with the little details of their room. And to be even more specific, we will be talking about their book shelves!

As a little reminder, here is the before and after of their living room:


The left unit use to be enclosed and it contained a TV. My Mom and Dad really wanted it to mirror the other book shelf so we opened it up and made the shelving units match. I was trying to keep their spending down, so I was urging them to leave it alone to save some money, but in the end, I’m really glad we decided to mimic the other side. The built-ins look so much more “finished” now that they match.

During their kitchen reno we added bead board to their bar area. After seeing how gorgeous the bead board looked, we decided to add bead board behind the book shelves as well. That detail adds SO much to the entire room! Such a fun little accent!



For the accessories we wanted to use a mix of old and new. We changed SO much about the space that we didn’t want to lose that sense of “home”.  In other words, we wanted to use some of my parents old decor in the space. In my opinion it’s all the little trinkets that really make a home feel like home.
