This wall has been bothering me forever. It's very frustrating to have all of your furniture purchased and still feel like your space looks unfinished. We have 9 ft ceilings in our downstairs and something was needed above the TV.
I had saved a few images for inspiration- (sorry I don't know where the top one is from)
And asked Uber super nicely if he would build me something, lucky we had a bunch of scrap molding in the garage from old projects so this was a great way to clear some of it out. I think this project ended up costing about $9.this $400 version which seems a little ridiculous to me but I was super happy to show it to Uber so he could see what an awesome job he did.
