Hallway Library

I love this little library that Amy from A Little Busy shared in the project parade.  Amy and Brian took an overlooked wasted space and created a little library.  Shelves in a hallway corner – genius!  

Hallway before:

They took off the chair rail and baseboards…

They used beadboard paneling for the back of the bookcases…

Brian built the frame work (not even a mild injury stopped him from getting back to work).

I love this part!    Amy says, “After the base went in and before he nailed it down we put in a letter to future homeowners and a copy of that days newspaper.” 

Shelves up and ready to be caulked, primed and painted.

Amy lined shelves with this pretty contact paper…

All done – a little library to organize her homeschooling books.

GREAT job, Amy & Brian! I love that it looks original to your home, built-in like it was always there.  What a clever use of unused space!  Thank you for sharing your creativity!
