This is like the ugliest brick ever. And the bookshelf? Never ever paint a bookshelf a matte bright color. Always paint it with a semi-gloss paint to reflect light and be a focal point. Duh!
I took off the HIDEOUS fire place screen and never looked back. Brass is not class. Repeat. Brass is low class. Just kidding but I do think it is a huge improvement. I also changed out the knobs on the bookshelf. Hung a strange but good-for-now piece of art work and called it a day.
What do you think? Improvement?
