Built In Update Seven

Since I can hardly stand it for one more second, I'm sharing a picture of what our built ins look like - you know with a ladder and a towel on one of the shelves. The photo is crooked (so are the floors and walls) and the shelves don't have their final coat of paint on them, but sometimes you just have to go with it.

Reminder of the beginning. 

Good, right? I'm also happy to report that the bead board ceiling is 80% complete and the walls are painted.  Only thing left on our construction to do list is install baseboards and crown including the crown and trim that will attach to the bookshelves. Can anyone say FINISH LINE!?

Here's a few snippets of the weekend:

Paint colors are Quarry Rock (left - for mantle) and Stingray (right - for walls) both by Benjamin Moore. 

Josh was building up the top of the mantle. I never understood how this would work but I really love how the trim came out. 
And a little bit of the beginning of the ceiling process... 

And one last little photo of admiration once we had the TV up and I was relaxing while Josh continued working on the ceiling. Night time will look more like this in my future... minus the football and unpainted front door. 

Happy Wednesday!
