Before our new vintage credenza could go in, he took off the old baseboards and ran speaker cable up against the floorboards, so that we could put the big subwoofer speaker back behind the sectional. Like certain guys of a certain era, he's an audiophile and spent a whole other day finessing the stereo sound quality. (There will be no photos of that excitement.) Then he had to size, trim, paint, and install the new baseboards. He also painted the inside of the nook, where our previous big media center had gone. (Like the rest of the wall, it's Benjamin Moore's "Hibiscus.")
Here's a before shot, with the old media center pushed out from the wall. You can see a better, older "before" shot over here.
|Proof that they were all drawers...|
|...but now this side is a door.|
|Note the big square of plywood where the drawer fronts are all attached.|
Oh, and as a sidenote: I put our old, massive entertainment center up for sale on Craigslist, and it sold within a couple of hours. Score!
