Bookshelves/ bricks: paint, remove??? Need Opinions!
April 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello, my husband and I are doing projects around the house to make our home more to our taste. We want to save for a large future renovation! We need opinions on our living room bookshelves and wood stove hearth which need to stay for the next 3-4 years. I want to paint the brick a charcoal and then want to either paint the bookshelves a lighter grey or white and do a contemporary stencil on the back of each shelf. The other idea I have is to just rip off the bookshelves themselves, leave the bottom with the doors and paint it, put more contemporary hardware, then put some floating shelves where the old ones were, and beef up the mantle around the brick. Ideas??? Please and thank you! Danielle
