Last week the hubs and I decided to make a big change in our living room. The wooden shelves that sit on each side of our fireplace were in need of a change. We had been flirting with the idea for a while and finally bit the bullet last week and painted them! I never realized how much they pulled your eye away from the rest of the room until they were painted. Now they blend in so nicely and I love the change! Check out the before and after pictures below!
