The den is starting to look less like a jumble of other people's abandoned projects and more cohesive. The pantry is functional and stocked, which means the canned food is no longer in banana boxes scattered over the den floor. It needs the door installed and some touch-up work, but it will do for now.
The insides of the
cabinets and the counter-tops are painted, and the counter-tops are
installed. We're almost finished with the ceiling trim. We've begun
putting up the side trim and the shelf brackets, including some curlicue
brackets my husband cut out of scrap.
To-finish: the trim, and the shelves.
To-do: clean up, paint, and install the recycled cabinet doors and drawers; install linoleum; and decide how to install the TV.
Most Important Job: get some sleep!
