Finally Finished!

The project that wouldn't end has ended.

This is the best before picture I could find.

Unfortunately it doesn't show the knobs from the doors. But I did take pictures of them before I tossed them.

When I unscrewed them before I painted the doors, they came apart.

Being screwed on is what kept them together.

I wanted new door hardware anyway. I couldn't find anything with the small spread these had, so I patched up the holes and drilled new ones.

Paint and power tools all in one project. If it hadn't taken the better part of the week it might have been exciting.

I like the contrast of the white bookcases against the orange walls.

Great job.
