Lounge alcove shelves

So the shelves are finally in and done in the lounge! There's another set of shelves exactly the same on the other side of the chimney. We can now start unpacking all of our boxes and putting books and DVDs that we haven't seen since we moved.

The room feels smaller now but somehow longer too. It's going to give us loads of storage, which is just what we need.


  1. Hi there, I have just moved house and I am looking at doing a similar thing! Did you buy a shelving unit and just adapt it or having you built the shelves yourself? What materials did you need to do this? Thanks.

  2. Hey, I'm curious too as how you done this. Did you build onto the existing wall structure, or did you build a frame onto the wall, and then build your shelving unit onto the frame?

    A bit of a guide on this would be nice.
