I thought I would post a picture of some of the other projects I have worked on recently. When we purchased our home the interior was very out dated – although the home was brand new. We decided to try to modernize the living room by putting built ins on either side of the fireplace. I hope to replace the fireplace in the near future with one that matches the stain of the built ins.
This was the second woodworking project that I completed – my first was the mudroom you will see in my projects file. I picked up the hobby and ran with it. I’m an engineer by trade and used numerous CAD programs in school – but sadly can’t remember how to use any of them. I built this in my head and then transfered the numbers and measurements onto wood. Total cost was probably under 800 dollars – I lucked out and found the handles at Lowes on clearance for 50 cents each.
The bottom was designed to match a buffett I found in a restoration hardware catalog, the top is designed on an antique cigar display I had seen online.
All in all I think it came out really well – the drawers fit DVD’s and the larger cupboards fit books / board games / blankets / toys.
Definitely helps clean up the room and make it look more modern.
I’m currently working on the basement – wait to you see this piece (hidden door / fireplace / bar ) – its big.
