The after! (Click on the image for a larger view.) Notice the narrow bookshelves on either side of the fireplace which offer storage that didn't even exist before - a perfect example of making the most of your space.

Shelves on the wall create a pretty gallery space.
A pretty wreath hung from the bookshelves.
A corkboard displays invites and cards.
