Our carpenter friend was helping me on Monday get some spray painting done.
Just before he was getting ready to leave he asked me if I wanted him to do anything.
I explained that that I have a piece of crown molding left over from the kitchen and would like to use it to bring the height of the cabinet up to ceiling height.
Being a blogger I also have a photograph of the wall before it was drywalled and painted so he could see exactly where the studs are.
It took both friend and Charlie to hoist this extremely heavy cabinet up onto two 18-inch long 2 by 4s so it could be screwed into the wall studs. (Eighteen inches is the amount of space I wanted to leave between the top of the bottom cabinet and the bottom of the top cabinet.)
It fit perfectly.
Next step for me: Mix the paint for the bottom section and paint it along with the lumber for the bedroom bookshelves.
Next step for the men: Trim out the top of the cabinet.
Do you enjoy inside or outdoor work better?
