now that I lost my large finish room, finished painting it, nothing fancy, plaster walls that have been abused for 60 years dont fix easily.
I ripped all the old molding, will install some mdf base and casing, and work on a few pieces for the room.
I need to build a radiator cover, a small writing desk, and a dresser/armoir, and closet doors, which Ill save for last.
I ripped out the wire closet unit, and decided to give myself more work and build a closet unit. Just for fun, Id rather be in the shop than in the house painting or ripping wall paper borders.
I finished the closet unit today, just need to sand and apply stain and one coat of poly.
The closet is 6 feet wide inside, so I devoted 3 feet to the until, will hang double poles other side.
I made a mistake, used sandeply, and the trim is ash as well as the drawer fronts.
Anything I wont be able to take when I sell my house will be made of ash for now on.
Simple butt and bradded birch plywood for drawers, the pulls I saved from my old kitchen.
Funny how I learn something every day. I didnt have long enough screws with the pulls, but there were bag fulls of screws left over from my new kitchen pulls/handles.
They are screws that can be cut down to any size, and I struggled for 20 minutes trying to cut the thing, then I realized, wow, like I had a V8 moment, I just need to snap the extra piece off.
New to me, Ive never seen a screw like that before.
This unit has a 72 inch shelf for the top, and two 36 inch poles for the left side.I put in a pole on the right side for longer lengths, even though I doubt much will be put in this closet.
