Idea for when we put french door in dining room. Ikea Shelves Into Built-in Bookcases :: I really love this. You could turn any room into a library with this idea. And you don't need ikea for it, either.
My soaker tub is set up identically to this. Instead of my wrought iron shelf, I would love to do a built in. I've also been torn with beadboard vs. tile for the front of the tub. Turns out I love the beadboard and its cheaper!
