Use Styrofoam to spray paint brackets (and knobs). you can stick a nail in the mounting hole to hold it in place and then you can spray all sides that will be exposed! I am a friggin genius LOL
I love the look of smooth sanded wood but this shelf has to be painted
took me an hour to find my miter box …it was on the couch 😦
Quarter round put up. Uggggh I suck at cutting quarter round with mitered corners. Everything is so dusty it looks weird in the photos. That quarter round is going to be painted green to match the shelves. The caulking has to dry before I paint it though.
Window frame is all in place as well
All in all I did not waste too much trim trying to get those miters right
The chair rail is in place on one wall only. I have to adjust my paint line because I changed where the chair rail was going to be. I also ran out of nails for my nail gun so I took that as a clue to stop work.
I AM DONE FOR THE NIGHT!!
