Hi, it’s Sandra from Sawdust and Paper Scraps again. Here is another room that is “mostly” finished. It still needs a few touch ups but it’s functional so I’ve moved on for now. I don’t have any pictures of my progress. I’m amazed at how much I didn’t take pictures before blogging.
It’s impossible to get a picture of the whole room but here is my very
best attempt at photoshopping all the parts into
one photo of the whole unit.
I know, it’s a total hack job but like I said, It’s my best attempt!
This house was all shades of ugly when I moved in. You’ll just have to use your imagination…it’s an empty room with orangy-brown window, base and door moulding.
I hate wasted space and always try to get the most storage out of every space I design. I built cabinets across the entire back wall, creating 2 computer stations and a T shaped countertop that could be used from either side for crafts or work.
I built one cabinet with 2 drawers in which the bottom drawer is a file cabinet.
The other side has shelves and doors.
At the end of the T is an open shelf cabinet. The countertop is made out of oak flooring that I installed over a plywood base. I finished it with Tung oil.
The uppers are staggered. It makes for trickier crown moulding installation but it’s visually interesting.
