We’ve all got that one room in our house that never seems finished. You try moving furniture, buying new accessories, but nothing seems to work. It’s like the space itself is just impossible.

One couple had a room like this in their new home, and they couldn’t let it go. When they started hammering wooden boards together, it looked like the room might stay torn up forever, but the finished product was truly breathtaking.

This guest bedroom was fine, if a bit boring.

They outfitted the bottom of the platform with a drawer.

The finished product was starting to look like something, although to the naked eye, it wasn’t clear quite what it would be…

It was going to be a floating bookshelf. It’s crazy how such a relatively simple change can transform a room.

Now all that was left to do were the finishing touches, like painting the siding to give it a polished look.

The end result looks positively professional!
