Ahhhhh. Built ins. I’ve been looking forward to doing a project like this. It’s the perfect way to make your home look more customized and also increase the value. I’ve been dreaming of built ins in our living room since we moved in. I knew it would be the perfect thing to add to the long, empty wall in the family room once the wall came down.
You know, since we have an art gallery now, it’s only fitting that we continue our hobby of art collecting. 😉
But, really, when it comes to real art, we never have cared too much about it. We’re engineers. We don’t really have the eye to appreciate it like others do. We went on a few cruises after we graduated college and would go to the art auctions on the ship just for the free glass of champagne. 😀
As life moved on, and redoing our homes became more important to us, I always considered buying something for one of our rooms to give it a personal, unique touch, that’s not a family photo. I just never could justify the price for a decorative object. So, while I wasn’t really looking, I found it, and under charitable circumstances… our first piece of art.
