Glad you like it! The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball Old White and the woodwork is Farrow & Ball All White.

Modern Emulsion will wear better and still has a nice matt finish to it.

Tried this an turns out the chimney breast isn't even close to straight. Ended up hacking up one shelf and returning the rest!

If I got a shorter shelf the didn't reach to each side do you think it would be nice or weird with the gap at each side? Thanks?

Hi,

Most period properties have challenges like wonky walls. I'd recommend getting a carpenter who can scribe the shelves into the alcoves. Any gaps can be filled and once decorated you won't even know.

Good luck!
