Finished a room renovation to convert my living room into a library. I added in a coffered ceiling and a gas fireplace too. There is a link below to a video if your interested in the finished project or want to see the details of how i built the room. If you have any comments or suggestions about the build please comment below. I’m interested in the input!

It looks like a lot of work went into this project, and it looks like it was well worth the effort too. Nice job!

Not knocking anybody’s work, but how the hell could a pencil holder (excuse me, “desktop accessory” beat THIS in the awards category?
Beautiful work brother.

That’s one STUD project – would take me a year or two at least at my leisurely pace. Real nice work, beautiful room.

Well done. I really like the lighted shelves; are they dimmable?

That’s an impressive room! And a lot of cabinetry. I like that each shelf is individually lighted. I’ve always defaulted to glass shelving when lighting cabinets (lighting at the top of the cabinet) but this has made me re-think that approach.

Tastefully done all around, I would add.
