Built-in bookcases around a shallow fireplace??
I have quite a shallow fireplace...only sticks out about 5" from the wall.
I'd love to have built-in bookcases on either side, but they'd have to protrude past the fireplace. Does anyone have something like this? I'd love to see pics for inspiration and reassurance. My DH thinks it'll look weird. Would 12" be far too much?
