I had to find a place for them, which was another task in itself, and finally decided on my bedroom. I think I will keep the trim around them white for now, it makes them "pop" a little more than the black did with the color of my bedroom walls.
I had my hubby cut off the tops off with the table saw, they used to look like this at the top..
Much better! I am starting on the building of the "wall" hopefully today (this evening). If it doesn't rain, wish me luck!
