It was a bit windier & colder today so I was glad there was just a little bit of priming left for the table bases. So I worked on inside jobs — with the windows & doors open. 😎
Finalized the shelving in Photoshop & decided to do thinner plywood [~½”] for two middle shelves & a glass one for a short third shelf maybe 4″ from the top — to place all those tiny containers that usually get lost among the bigger ones.
Although it’ll be awhile before I get them finished, I also added glass doors. [They will cost about the same price as fabric cubes & besides, I think the glass looks more sophisticated.]
I’d been mulling over these glass colours — do I match it with the blues of the house? Or the beautiful green I saw at Glass-Smith’s that doesn’t match any of my colours? Then, I remembered a beautiful creamy ivory opaque glass also there — that’s it!
I’ll check out the price & hope it’s not the expensive stained glass — like $15 or $30 per sq. ft. I like the idea of all the colour coming from the accessories — what do you think? Would you use blue, turquoise, green, ivory, or another colour?
With an open back, the length can go up to 36″ [under the tabletop] before it hits the back of the other table base.
It would be fairly unusual for me have any sheets bigger than 2′ x 3′ — if so, I’m sure they wouldn’t stay that large for long. 😉
Now, will the weather be nice enough to get 3½ plywood shelves primed & installed in the workshop? Then I can move this baby in, paint it ivory semi-gloss, & remove the table legs. The countdown is on! 😀
