HI there, so sorry , I don't recall the exact measurements. The piece was custom built to fit the width of the room. I believe the shelves are each approximately 16" tall. Best, Sarah

Perfect. Bookshelves were given a molding around the top to finish them off. They stick out, which ours would do. This shows an idea of a flat screen over the fireplace and the entire things encased. Exactly "doable" in our situation! I'd paint the stone/brick a dark grey or dark taupe.

S - I like this - but don't like how the fireplace is not prominent - it is tucked back. Feels off to me. The fireplace should be the gem of the room with the bookshelves flanking it/setting it off.
