This room has been everything over the past 23+ years, from a completely air tight shop with special fans for air supply and others for collecting dust and sawdust, to a lovely big bedroom for an ungrateful teen relative, to a junk and stuff storage room....(which come to think of it wasn't much different from her bedroom..hahahha which is one of the reasons I tossed her butt out)....but, luckily it has always had a door.. which I would close when I tired of looking at it.
Now, it's beautiful, functional, and mine....all mine !.... well, mine and Gardener's ... he likes to keep me company in there... see him over there behind the door? ... he's slightly shy.
I love it ! Look how tidy ... all the cables and wiring hidden now behind a beautiful, useful bank of cupboards and drawers. Hidden tv and stereo 'remotes', some books, extra wiring, exercise info, extra socks, t-shirts and some DVDs..... alright!
All the cupboard doors and drawer fronts were painted and left to dry nicely .... then we hung them, put on handles and also hung the tv... my entertainment while I march along on the treadmill....and my encouragement to do some exercise routines... the only thing I still want is a 6 or 8 foot expanse of mirror on the one wall so I can check form and make sure I am doing some moves correctly.
These door faces were built by stripping some louvers out of a pair of new bi-fold closet doors.... cutting out the exact size space, gluing them into position and then putting on some trim, etc. Mr. BV invented and built them. What a guy. Sure it took a while.. we are not cupboard builders... but, we did it. It allows for some air circulation inside the space.... which is helpful for the stereo units .. some of them get pretty warm when in use. You can just see some more louvers on the right hand side as well.... smaller doors he also built ...leading to a huge storage area. I'll be in and out of there over the next week.... getting out the Christmas stuff. Now everything is back in working order and I will have room to maneuver....
