This week, I'm working on the face trim. More pics to come . . . .
UPDATE: Sorry with all the traveling birthdays, weddings, etc., this project has continued to be slow-going. I have finally added the face- and end-trim bit have not yet installed the crown or base trim. I need to make some final decisions on the light fixtures so I can order those parts and install the lights before I finish up. Then I can start staining!
Since the last pictures I have:
-Cut, routed, and installed the face trim
-Cut, routed, and installed the end trim
-Trimmed out the window and doorway
-Built and installed the charging dock
-Routed the front edge of all the shelves.
Here's what it's looking like now:
|Hoping to find a small sofa for where the chairs are and some nice chairs for where the old ratty sofa is.|
|Removable charging station|
|Close-up of routed shelf edge|
Next, I need to work on building the doors for the lower section of the bookshelves. . . .
UPDATE: Got the doors cut, fitted, routed, and glued-up. They are now sitting in place, though they don't have any hinges yet.
UPDATE: Lights are done
|Let there be light. Worked late into the night with a headlamp to get these babies installed.|
UPDATE: Crown moulding is in. Window sill is cut and routed and sitting in place. I won't install it until I decide if I want to take the time and energy to do something fancier with the trim below the window.
I'm sick so I will be taking a break. Next, I need to stain everything, work on wall trim for the rest of the room, build the desk wall, and wallpaper or paint (or do both to) the walls. I also need to find a small sofa to fit under the window: I have a feeling that this will be my favorite room to lounge in this winter . . . .
