We are getting to the end here and I have spent the majority of the time focusing on the built ins and these are some caulk, shiplap and three cabinet doors from being finished!
This past week was super fun because I got finish out the build of the shelves and get them into place finally! I left off last week with the frames built out of ½ inch plywood. This week I framed them out with one by twos and then stained the shelves and added those in.
I used another sheet of ½ in plywood for the top of the “shelf box” and used selected pine 1x 3 for the front. For the stain I used w white wash let that soak in for a few minutes and then added special walnut on top and then wiped off all the excess
After I added these in I secured them into the frame creating the shelves. Then secured the shelves to the walls and then started caulking. I also started adding the faux shiplap behind the tv.
For the faux shiplap I am using just a sheet of underpayment plywood cut into 4.5 inch strips and using a quarter as a spacer to create the look of shiplap.
I have to prime that and caulk the corners and this part will be completed! Then I will be adding the toe kick, 3 more cabinet fronts and trim to the top and then the built ins will finally be finished! This next week I’m hopefully going to busy out everything at once haha
Don’t forget to check out all the other ORC participants!! The projects are crazy!! So much talent.
