I need some help.
I bought these Ikea bookcases too long ago to return. I thought I wanted a wall-to-wall look--but it just isn't working for me.
Should I paint them brown/black?
Then, if I do that, should I paint the firplace "surround?"
I was thinking of putting the cases on a plinth and raising them--and putting one across each set of two so that there's one continuous "line" across the room--would that help?
What about the fake river rock? Should I paint that out too?
Those are our overlarge speakers in the "hole." I don't know where else to put them--but I could put up a fabric screen in front? or put a trailing ivy or philodendron on top?
ps: my room is 11 feet wide and 14 feet deep. The bookcases/firplace squares up the room a little!
pps: the kids videos and toys won't be there forever, either, lol! But we need it for now. :(
