We recently moved into a new house and we had this ginormous alcove (8ft tall by 8feet 8 inches wide and 2 feet deep) that was just sitting lonely, awaiting a transformation! I talked my husband into creating an entertainment center for me so that I had shelves to display pictures of my family and friends and a place for the tv to sit up high so that my toddler's fingerprints would stay off of it!
My husband put cabinet lighting in too (they are not mounted to the top of the shelves yet, but you get the idea!)
Here it is once I painted it!
Isn't it beautiful!?! I still need to do the moulding at the bottom and add a picture with the cabinet doors too!
