Operation Upgrade the Built In came out about 50/50… I’m hoping to make things better (note: not perfect) this weekend.
Let me share with you how things have gone:
From afar, things only look slightly awry- the white is nice, the handles are a great color, and it's got kind of this 70s vibe to it that I really dig.
Unfortunately, when you zoom in on the doors you can see they are slightly uneven. And honestly, this is probably not going to get fixed- it is widely known that I am incapable of making things level and this is just close enough.
The bigger problem lies here: I completely missed the mark on the lefthand side handle and need to wood glue the hole and try again. I also learned the hard way (via the right hand handle) that you should drill THEN paint. Apparently drilling splits and peels paint...oof.
Overall, I'm really liking the look and hopefully by Monday it'll all be up to par.
ps- what do you think about the peek into my dark, dank bathroom? Yeah, that’s got to change. I’ve decided to paint it the same orange-y beige as my bedroom some day soon in hopes of brightening up. Seriously, who decided to paint the bathroom the same color as the business you do in there?
