In the next few weeks, I plan on employing my husband and father-in-law (perhaps this is news to them!) on another permanent renovation to our rental apartment: installing built-in storage under the stairs in our apartment. Our landlord gave his permission for this project, and I know it will add a lot of value to our place.
If you're wondering what happens to the t.v., we don't use it so we'll get rid of it and the campaign-style stand it sits on. Back to today's project! While I wait for saws to start cutting and hammers to start nailing, I took a paintbrush to the side of the stairs. The oak wood isn't my taste but, more importantly, the wood tone made the whole corner look dark. I filled in any nail holes, began painting, and was done in about an hour.
Doesn't the white paint lighten the whole set-up? I concur!
I'd like to install under-the-cabinet storage something white, bright and useful like this:
Can't wait to get this project underway!
P.S.: If anyone local is interested in the 2-drawer campaign chest, email me!
