Before And After: Book Shelves (Part 2)

We recently added onto an existing built-in cabinet, gaining more room for our book collection and a more balanced space.  By recreating a mirrored image of the right side shelving on the left, our  unit now feels complete and so does the room.  Take a look:

In order for the built- in to look cohesive we painted the entire unit.  I used the same color but in a full gloss finish.  In this "before" the boys are helping us remove the books and enjoying them as well.

The Chinese chest that belonged to my mother-in-law sat above our living room bar.  Now, in its new home, it can be truly appreciated it.
