One thing that I absolutely love about older homes is finding those built in shelves that have been a part of the homes character from the beginning! Although some might not be as stunning when you see them at first, it doesn’t take much to make built in’s stand out and shine!
You’ll notice most placements of built in’s in older homes have amazing placement like the one above. It’s a great use of what might otherwise be a wasted space.
At first glance those built in’s might not seem as amazing as they are cracked up to be, but a quick coat of paint can make an amazing difference.
They also serve an awesome purpose as well! Although it may not seem apparent that open shelving great storage, there are great ways to store items without them being a distraction to an eye. A cute basket can be great visually and also hide away things!
