Update: The Great Living Room Renovation (Ready for Furniture!)

We are REALLY in the home stretch!

On Wednesday night the tv was back up on the wall, the IKEA shelving unit was put together and installed and the wood trim was back on the ceiling, baseboards and corners.

I took some pictures before we (foolishly) stayed up until 3 a.m. moving furniture back in and playing with the setup.

On Thursday I went to Target in search of new curtains for the three windows.  You will see them up in the next update.

Looking into the living room:

Looking at the back:

IKEA Billy Bookcase

And a close up look at our new shelving unit.  These are various pieces from the IKEA Billy line.  You are looking at 1 double shelving unit and 1 single shelving unit on either site of the piano.  Across the top there are 4 smaller box units – 2 are the way IKEA sells them – with 3 cubbies.  The space above the piano was 1 foot too long to be a perfect fit for 2 more units… so Biker Bob had to take 2 units and merge them together into 1 (4) cubby unit.
