Aren't the built-in cabinets lovely! I'm just excited to have a room that I can sit in once again.
Actually, they're almost done. We have crown molding to put in along the top, but won't get to that until probably next week.
Matt and his brother, Nick, pulled an all-nighter doing touch-ups and cleaning up the room. What a lovely surprise for me when I came downstairs in the morning.
When their dad got home at around 7 a.m. (he lives in the basement for now), he admired the cabinets, too, and Matt said to him, "You actually get to see it before Ivy does!" Which is funny, because Ivy is his fiancee halfway around the world, who keeps up with the family goings-on by reading my blog (Hi, Ivy!). Then she tells him what we're up to. That just cracks me up. It takes women to get any information conveyed, that's for sure.
