So, the other day, I hit up my husband with a picture of something that I wanted.
Something I really really really wanted. Like REALLY REALLY WANTED.
You got me, yet?
This is that picture.
Now...if anyone actually reads this thing...you might remember me talking about this entertainment center/built ins in this post here. If not, go read up, first!
So, like I said....Josh sees the pic and asks me if I really want this for our bedroom. I tell him, of course.....duh......I love it.....I want it.....and that I would reeeeeeeally love to start this project this weekend with his new table saw. How else was I going to get this project done? Um....butter him up with his new tools (at least this is what my mom taught me, hahaha). Well, last Friday I made plans after work and didn't get home until 9. While my girlfriend and I were out, I get this picture message below. Needless to say, I got really excited! The project had begun!
To my surprise, this is what muh boo had done by the time I got home!!!!!!
I knew Josh was talented, but I didn't know he was THIS talented.....nor did I know he could work this quick. So, when I got home, I was AMAZED!!!! GLORY!!!!
We grabbed a bite to eat and crashed so that we could continue the next morning!

The next morning we got up and got back to work. As you can see, this is NOT a tutorial. Why...you ask? Because one thing I really learned this weekend is that I am NOT a good DIYer. I am not a good measurer nor am I good at building. I follow rules pretty well, so that's what I did. When I was told to prime, I primed. When I was told to paint, I painted. When I was told to hold this cabinet door, I held it. Oh, and I provided moral support and held the tape measure at times :)
Here are a few more snapshots of the final project!
So, there ya have it! Excuse the pillows please in the final picture. It was late......I was tired.....& I am going to re-work some of the things I placed on the shelves. Like I said, it was late and I was just playing around with what I had laying around. I will get better pictures when our room is clean and when I have picked out what exactly I want on these shelves! I will also take better pics with my camera and not my iPhone after Josh trims out the door! I feel like you can't even tell in these pictures, but the back wall part in the built ins is the same grey as the walls (Benjamin Moore-Stonington Gray) which was a nice touch Josh threw in there as well!!!
Hope you like it, and if you have any cute ideas for knick knacks on my shelves, please please please shoot me some ideas or some links to check out!!!
