This is a neat post from My Modern Met. It shows all the Olympic pictograms through the years of the summer Olympics in the various countries. There are so many more sports now. Check it out here!
We finally have the library in place on our newly constructed shelves. Jeff devoted so much care to making these. I'm so happy we decided to take the time to design this whole area ourselves. Even though it took so long to complete, we now have a very unique living room. They are so special compared to buying pre-made wall shelves (and they fit much better too). I just love looking over to this side of the room!
Just like the first side that went up, these shelves are also built on angles. Each shelf alternates which direction the angle goes, from skinny to thick and from thick to skinny. The only difference is on this side they extend right from the fireplace to the wall. The shelves were each made to fit exactly with the wall. However, they fit too well, as we ended up having to cut a piece off just to be able to get them into place. It's not too noticeable but there is a piece missing out of each shelf on the fireplace side. Jeff plans to make small pieces to fit in there in the future. So I guess the shelves aren't 100% done, but they are at least now functional.
To see how we created these shelves, and to see the process from the beginning check out my previous posts:
