Eighteen of Eighteen

For all intent and purpose I am done with these cabinets!!!! I finished and installed the 18th and final door this afternoon.

Door Goes Open

Door Goes Closed

There are still a few things to do, but the carpentry portion of this never ending project has finally come to an end. I need to putty a lot of holes and everything – and I do mean everything, not just the cabinets – is covered in sawdust. There is also a little painting left to do on the butler’s pantry side. I should be able to finish all of that up mid-week next week.

Oh, and then there’s this…

The shop is covered wall-to-wall in 3 to 8 inches of saw dust. I'm hoping to find a few lost tools under there.

Wow, that is just amazing and beautiful. Now it's time for you to have a dinner party! (after you clean up the sawdust, of course).

Thanks so much for taking so many pictures. It's been so fun to follow along.

So what's next???

Hmmm....a dinner party. That sounds like fun.

What's next - skim-coat plaster on the dining room walls.

i've been on the road and missed this stunning announcement. i'm really proud of you. mazel tov!!!!

p.s. have you got any recommendations for primer on walls painted a series of hideous dark colors?

Greg said...

Thanks again for the nice comments.


If you really, really, really need to cover something Sherwin Williams carries a pigmented shellac primer that is the best I've ever used. NOTHING will get through it.
