I have been hunting for the right book shelves since before we started this project and have found nothing. I did find some really nice ones on line but they cost more then the entire center by itself! So I checked a local furniture store and they had these in the right size, and they are made right here in Burley which I was sold on! The ONLY problem was having to paint them, paint, paint, paint!
So the entertainment center before shelves;
And after; Well, midway after.
We still are working on a bridge for above the tv. We will probably just use upper kitchen cabinets, like above fridge ones. We added trim pieces to the bottom of the book shelves to beef them up a little and then I hope to put crown moldings on also.
The windows came. Tearing the old ones out is WAY more work than installing the new ones! The frames were concreted in to the wall! The kittie just sat and watched it all!
Lots of sledge hammering, and my clean basement is no longer clean…
Of course we had lots of help too!
The finished window, well one of them, it is all trimmed and sanded, and of course I ran out of paint! This job is just dragging on! So another trip to the store before we can bed done with windows.
Hopefully we are getting super close now. We are enjoying that new BIG tv. Ryan is just amazed! It is fun!
