  2. That looks fantastic! I love how you found a solution to make the piece work for you and your space. And not an inch wasted – even room for the lacrosse sticks!

    Talk about custom built-ins! This is so cool! I see those all the time in thrift stores – the roll top ones would work too. Great job – I can’t wait to see the room come together.

  12. Wow you guys have outdone yourselves here. I would not have been able to envision this in a million years. You created a whole built in unit out of practically nothing. And it looks fabulous against the dark wall. I cannot wait to see the finished room.Tara thanks for sharing this at Sweet Inspiration.
