Beefin' Up the Built-Ins

In our house we have two fireplaces and a set of built-ins on either side of both fireplaces. We spend a lot of time in our living room, especially after the boys go to sleep, and I've spent a lot of time staring at the built-ins in this room pondering how I can make them a little more substantial.

If you can remember waaaay back in October, I wrote about how I wanted to make some changes to this room. One thing I mentioned was some new doors on the built-ins. They are currently in progress, and I'm excited to share them with you, just as soon as they're finished.

This is the door style I'm going with. I was going to go with a simple Shaker style, but decided to add a vertical lattice strip down the middle for a little more character. They'll be painted Benjamin Moore's White Down, and the shelves will get a fresh coat of paint as well. I might add some quarter round at the bottom and crown at the top, only time will tell!

I've put a little pressure on myself to get these puppies done before the weekend. My in-laws are coming down to visit, as well as my brother-in-law and his family. I always have something going, and I'm sure they think I'm crazy (nothing like making assumptions, right?). Hey, at least I'm not painting the entry for the 5th time... literally...
