My Built-Ins

When Michael and I first looked at the house we live in now, I fell in love with our built in shelves on either side of the fireplace...that is--until a few days after we moved in and I started trying to decorate them. I got about 2 shelves deep on one side and realized that I had used every single decoration I had previously owned and still had 4 shelves to decorate! So now...months later...my built-ins are no longer naked. They aren't perfect, but not naked!
So now...I'm turning to you for help and input...I'm desperate!

We have built ins on one side of our fireplace- there are 3 put together, if that makes sense- I don't love at all what I have in them! I love the way you layered yours! I may need to try that I may have to send you a pic and let you critique them!!! It looks great!!! Keep posting your home pics b/c I love looking at them and wondering what I can do at my house :-)
