Some of you may remember my 100th post, If Walls Could Talk. If you missed it, please check it out!
This is how the front bedroom looked when we moved in... and I mean exactly how it looked. Plastic and all.
It's a strange room, cut up into two sections.
Here's my brother helping Kevin tear out the lath a few years ago~
And how the corner pretty much looks now... except the room is A LOT more full of junk, piled high with no place to put it! We need new windows and trim yet, but that will have to wait for budget and time.
I wanted to have some built in shelves but wanted them to have some sort of old or architectural elements intead of just plywood. I got the idea to find two old panel doors, 36 inches wide. We could then cut them in half vertically and use them on the ends of the cabinet and for the main structure.
Well, no luck finding old doors, esp. ones that I would want to cut up!
BUT! I did find two sets of used bi-fold closet doors. They had the panels, and they were exactly the right size for what I had in mind! Only $8 per set, woohoo!
I showed Kevin what I wanted and he went to work~
(sorry, this is thru the screen!)
Not much to see yet, but I hope to have everything in this week. Yay! To be organized and have everything up and off of the floor. I cannot wait! Stay tuned!
