We're getting closer
Here is the whole built in so far. The unit on the right will have glass shelves and lighting. I think we'll use rope lighting and a glass door as well, so I won't have to dust so much. The left unit will have shelves for books. Above the unit you see part of the wall is a light color--there will be boxes up there as well. Those will be for knickknacks. I have a really cool dragonfly teapot the the hubby bought for me while we were in Germany, and other stuff as well. I don't know what yet. I think this is looking fine though. There were moments when there were tears, but all is well now!
Here is the lower unit. I put the shelves in this morning. Not as hard as I thought it would be. These are going to be for paperbacks. I have doors that will slide in front, so you won't see the books. The front edges of the shelves (in fact every piece of wood) is still unpainted wood. It will be covered by molding then painted white. It is plywood, so not so beautiful, but it's strong.
Still no sewing, but soon I hope, soon.
