breaking down very, very old shelving and tv stand

Koley H.April 6, 2013
This is my parents home :). My parents are not big on change so when I came home it was time and I continued to encourage them so we finally made some big steps. What kind of shelves should we build??? Any ideas for this wall...

The current shelves are too "thin". Need something with more "meat" to it. Can you do a possible shelve/cabinet combo?

I suggest that you have built in bookcases made that include a designated space for the TV. It can be expensive but it will give you a beautiful finished look.

We've remodeled a couple indoor fireplaces so these are a few ideas I've seen. Definitely agree with S&K...incorporating a built in for your tv. not only want it visually appealing but also functional.

If it is in the budget, built in cabinetry units will be much more appealing and practical for use and future resale value.

Brown Bros., I really like what you did with the center picture. My next redecorating project includes a family room with high ceilings and a fireplace like the one in that picture. When I get ready to tackle that project in the next few weeks, I will post a before picture.

Wow amazing work! I think if my parents living room was bigger these ideas would work.
