I am so so very glad I learned carpentry right about now, because building this simple cabinet and adding the shelves and bead board and all the trimmings would probably cost around $400-$500 if I were to be asked to do this kind of custom work because it came in for so much less.
Now to figure out a color for the walls in here and to make doors for the closet here also.
I am so excited to fill it all up with my pretty items, but as I ask my clients to wait at least a week before using painted built-ins I will wait a week also. It's oh so hard to wait.
Looky looky here , this is the floor after the final and third coat of clear coat. It gets better with every coat. It doesn't look like you can see the grain but you can in real life.
This means that in a few days I can bring in the breakfast table that I refinished (it's amazing and finished in classic black stain) and my beautiful new kitchen chairs. and then we can bring in the island and I can build the micro wave cabinet to add to that. Things are going to really move forward now.
Who wants to sand those kitchen cupboard doors for me?? I need a nice weather day to do that nasty job.You can also see the bulk head and crown moulding all painted the Bedford gray , its looking so so much better.
