I was left speechless when the editors of HGTV Magazine contacted me about a future article. Then I recovered and rambled my way through the interview. Knowing something is going to happen, and actually seeing it happen, are two totally different things. So even though I knew it was coming, I still did a round-off back-handspring, with a double back flip, when the September issue arrived in my mailbox Saturday. I kid. I added a twist to the back flip. In the spirit of the Olympics.
The entire issue is great, but I'm partial to page 48, Bookshelves: Little Changes, Big Impact. Not only is it so stinking
And welcome to all you new readers...thanks so much for stopping by. I know you're here because of this image...
So I thought I'd break it down and show you the DIY projects included in the shelves.

And these shelves certainly didn't start out like this, you can also check out the Before pics of the shelves, how we added crown molding, backed them with fabric, and finally, styled them. The entire Living Room has been going through a makeover, and here's where we stand:
LIVING ROOM TO-DO LIST
Paint Hall Chest
