It is only a partial remodel. I am still debating the knobs. ...
However, we decided (after much back and fourth deliberation on my part) to keep the wood instead of painting it. BUT, I was still not happy with how it looked. Nothing POPPED. The shelving still looked out dated, like walking into a hunting cabin family room, and you could barely see the stuff I stuck up there ....
SO, I painted the back and am really happy with the way it turned out! I feel that it brings the room together well! I also started a more neutral color scheme and incorporated more gold, browns, and blacks still can't get myself to move the K&B though... ha!
and yes, yes, I know, the ram is hung too high ... I'm TRYING to get KC to move it down a little ;0)
Can't forget my little buddy, Dudley, who posed perfectly for all the pictures!
Now onto choosing knobs to help make the built in more modern.
This is in the current runnings:
Tune in later for the final decision!
