My wife really likes this project.
One of my clients had a somewhat small guest bedroom in serious need of shelving. She had a set of beautiful, ornate shelf brackets, plus a small vanity chair, which gave her the vision to add a set of shelves on either side of the brick chimney in her historic home.
Here is a before-and-after of the shelving installation.
My client liked the new shelves so much that she immediately styled them, so I took a glamor photo:
The formerly cluttered guest room now has a dressing table and a place for books. I guess I can see why my wife likes this project.
As an added bonus, I did a little minor onsite furniture repair to that chair:
I liked the stylish lines of this old piece, so I'm glad I was able to save it.
