DIY bookcases by the fireplace. This kind of spot is perfect because I have plenty of walls to work with for support. Building a piece in a space like this is easier. I started by screwing the side pieces to the bottom shelf from underneath. Then we placed it directly on top of the baseboards. No need to remove them!:
A fireplace with a painting of fire and with bookshelves on a side. It's all white and its design is very simple and elegant. On the top of it you can put all kind of decorative elements as well as a TV.
We are planning to build a floor to ceiling bookcase just between the fireplace and the exterior wall (see below). As we knew it would, this will require a new fireplace (a two-sided one rather than a four-sided so that it will be safe to put wood bookcases right next to the side of the fireplace).
Installing ready-made bookcases on each side of a fireplace provides the appearance of built-ins without the need to call in a contractor or carpenter.
Looking good with your tweaks and additions, and the fireplace just begs for a friend on either side. Looking at your chairs in front of the fireplace, I immediately thought of a small room Maria Killam did with bookcases on either side of the fireplace and two comfy chairs situated in front.
