In October I ripped out the ugly old-people built-ins (pic 2) that were in my home office. My idea was to do floating shelves all the way across but the wood alone was going to be over $1,000 so instead I had to be a bit more creative/cheap. I had to biscuit join 8 shelves together and had to do different supports instead of floating ones. It didn’t come out perfect and like most websites I make, it still came in way late and over budget but I’m still proud that I did it all myself with a little bit of help from the wifey. Next step is replacing the carpet, installing trim and decluttering a little more but overall I love it.
