Decorating- Built In Shleves! I'm a believer!

One of the things that is great about being married to a contractor, is that once in a while I get something fun! He designed these and had the built. Aren't they amazing!





I tried to group the books by color, I have seen that before in design magazines and it looks so clean! Turns out all the dark books were hubbys and all the white ones were mine!

I've been hiding out lately, feeling a little depressed about finances and the lack of shopping in my life now that I have my new bod!

I had a wonderful discovery today though, clothes I had put away, one size down, that were perfect and fabulous! What a thrill! Shopping in my own closet! Woot! Woot! More on that tomorrow and a tummy tuck update!!

Wouldn't you guys all like a little vacay to Charleston SC? You can fly out here and hubs can design/build me some built ins? Doesn't that sound fun? I love yours!! They look great.

The beginning of the year is always financially brutal for us. I want to win the lottery.

Gorgeous! Please don't be blue.... I keep watching that video you posted the other day (which I have sent to SO many people) and it snaps me right out of any funk I'm in (and believe me there are plenty :)

I think closet shopping is great, and kind to your wallet!

I have been thinking about built-ins a lot lately, something just like yours, but with room for the tv! I need a contractor husband!

The builts are terrific and such a great anchor for the fireplace wall. The white is so fresh and fantastic! Great job on being down a size and shopping in your own closet...fantastic!
