Bookcases Installed

This past weekend, we installed the bookcases on either side of the big window in my daughter’s room. We still need to install the shelves, but they need primer and paint first (I’m so sick of painting right now). This project is taking a very long time, and I think we’re all getting ready for it to be done with.

It seems that with every home improvement project, it has to get a little ugly before it gets pretty.  In order for the bookcases to go in, we had to remove the crown moulding in the room.  I have to say it was a little heartbreaking taking down the crown moulding…like taking one step backward just to take another step forward.  But, I know it will all look great in the end…whenever that is…

Next up…installing our homemade cabinet doors, and the bookcase shelves. Stay tuned!
