For the last several days, my kitchen bookcase has been coming together. Pascal built the big pieces in his shop and is now working on all the fiddly installation and trim. Because the house is 113 years old, nothing is plumb, but he is making it work.
He's out today getting a root canal (ugh) but should be done in a few days. He will paint the shelves to match the current colors in the kitchen (a light café au lait), since I don't think I'll get around to repainting the walls and cabinets in a different color anytime soon. I don't like the dark cabinets, but they're OK for now. My inspiration for redoing them may well come from day-lab diy.
