DIY Project Parade

I‘m posting the DIY Project Parade early today since I’ll be celebrating the end of my third decade of life and beginning of the 4th. Today is the eve of my 40th birthday. Part of me wants to throw an “I can’t be 40!” tantrum. But, I’m trying to embrace it – what a blessed milestone! I’ll be holding a little giveaway later this week so you have a chance to win a present so check back!
As you know, I’ve been working on my livingroom. I have the walls painted, the photo wall done,

new curtain rods and the curtains lengthened,

the built-in shelving organized

and the other day I spent $ at Lowe’s for these plans:
Justify FullGo ahead, laugh at my sketch. I’m not a professional drafter but it gives you an idea of what I have in mind.

Here was my inspiration and I apologize that I have NO idea where I borrowed this picture from. If you know – please let me know so I can give proper credit. If it’s you – thank you for inspiring me! Mine isn’t going to be this pretty. We have brick instead of a black insert and no cute little built-in hearth-seat thingy but still, this inspires me to build ours up to the ceiling.
It’s also the project that is going to help me get over my fear and teach me how to use the miter saw. I am almost 40 after all! I’m excited!

Reveal coming once I have lamps and a few other pieces done.
