This bookcase was placed in a hallway. During construction always look for ways to incorporate built ins they are a great way to make your home more custom without breaking the bank. The X motif helps with the possible disorganization that may happen with the things you place in your bookcase. These were painted with Benjamin Moore White Dove and Visual Comfort library lights in a nickel finish highlight the bookcases. Don’t forget during renovation /construction to have your electrician wire for the possibility of using lights in different areas such as these library lights.
