A cycling buddy of mine asked me to build a built in to fill the space in an alcove he had in his sun room. The granite top for the base cab is gorgeous and really pops against the white, it also matches the wall color. Flat panel doors with euro hinges and adjustable shelves on the bookcases round out the rest of the unit.
A couple who live right up the road from me reached out for a bedroom remodel. They are expecting their first child and wanted to convert a bedroom into a nursery. The plan was to maximize the space created by the dormer with a window seat/toybox and a bookcase built into the knee wall. Then finish the room with beadboard wainscot, chair rail and new baseboard. I added beadboard to the window seat panels to match the wainscot and painted all the woodwork with Behr White Jasmine in Satin.
After being fed up with piles of stuff in our spare room and not having enough closet space to hide everything, I decided the easiest solution to get organized would be a built in. The bookcases all have adjustable shelves and the base cabs have one adjustable shelf each. This really helped to clean up the room, behind the doors are all the stuff not pleasing to the eye, theres plenty of bookcase room for more books, magazines and pictures.
This is a wainscot project I did last fall. I matched wainscot they already had in their dining room and added it to their foyer and stairway. They asked me back before the holidays to do the painting and this is the finished product. Thanks Debbie and Chris for your buisness.
