Today is a very important day! It’s Nate’s birthday! The big 33. So old. Luckily he appearance to be obtainment better with era. To celebrate Nate becoming elderly, oppose’s discuss how he constructed our living room built-up-ins. This place is heavy on pictures. Light on words. Just like my husband. Pretty on the eyes, easy on the ears.Pretend that makes feeling.We recently divulge the finished built-ins. Today we confirm that Nate actually built them.I asked him for tips and tricks that he learned along the way. His number one suggestion is to “not raise them.” But he doesn’t denote that. Especially after he added up the cost. As you may know, accountants discourse in numbers. We exhausted about $450 entire for the above built-ins (embrace mantel, molding, hardware, and describe). This project would have easily cost us thousands of dollars if we would have hired it out.Today we are sharing how we built our built-ins. This isn’t so much an in-depth tutorial like our other projects but more like a guide. These cabinets are obviously custom so our dimensions may not be super helpful to you. Hopefully they can help guide you if you are building your own. (Unfortunately there isn’t enough time for us to supply everyone with their very own custom dimensions. Sorry!) It’s pleasant if you just face at the pictures. That’s totally what I would do. #bustedNate started by construction the base cabinets. He used 3/4″ MDF (4×8 sheets). We chose MDF because it’s smooth, inexpensive and easy to work with. If you plan to stain to your cabinets, you will want to choose a different material.He cut the MDF sheets to the appropriate dimensions with a circular saw.He attached the boards with screws. Anywhere you would see a screw, he application a pocket hole screw. If you wouldn’t see the distortion, he used a regular screw. He also usage wood glue on all of the edges.He attached the top of base cabinet with conclude nailer. He then built the frame using pocket hole screws. He attached the frame with finish nails and furious glue. Always wood glue. Always.He then filled cave, calked, sanded, etc. Repeat. Etc. He then built the top part of the cabinets.He started by annex the long sides to top. We interest grooved boards for the back. He built the top by attaching each one individually to the frame with a close nailer and wood glue.  He then made frame similar to the worthless small. He attached the frame to the cabinet with a finish nailer and timber glue. Finish nailer.Fill, caulk, sand, repeat. We then painted the cabinets using our paint sprayer. We did 2 coats primer, 1 cloth picture. We attached our shelves after picture (true based on time constraints). It would be easier to attach the shelves before painting. We sometimes like to do things the hard way. We permanently attached our shelves. You could do brackets. We know we’re far too idler to adjust defer so we went with them permanently attached.We installed the base cabinet first. Nate made sure it was level front to back and side to side, using shims on the bottom as necessary.He attached the base cottage to walls with screws.We then placed the higher cabinet on top. These cabinets are heavy. I thought we might sink each time. Maybe seizure a friend or two to relieve you and your spouse out. Again, level front to back and side to side. Attach to the wall with finish nails. Install both sides. Then caulk, sand, paint until you never deficiency to see filler, caulk or paint ever again. Here we have the cabinets in their naked nation. You could only imagine the stares we got with this set up. Nate’s a paint sprayer hog. Luckily watching is true as fun. It’s like conjuration. Once the cabinets were built and painted. We worked on the install. As a refresher, here’s where we started. We first installed the base cabinet on the right. Nate was terrified the port wouldn’t fit so we started with the one that would be the smoothest to induct. Starting on the right was a good decision. A little dry wall needed to be removed before installing the left. Turns out most of the counterscarp in our home aren’t straight. Whatever. We almost died putting on the top left but we crush it in. I course to work on Labor Day morning and came dwelling to beautiful molding on the fireplace. I should work on holidays more often. Wait. No.He also installed concord round to perfect off most of the brink. He then caulked and sanded. I followed with the paint brush. The floors were installed part way through the cabinet setting up. We positive to go ahead and install the cabinets before the wood floors. We have zero plans of removing these cabinets so it shouldn’t matter. Famous last words. I was so excited that I styled the shelves before there were cabinet passage. I went to strength night one concealment and came home to doors. Clearly the moral of this story is that I should go away more often. (Door tutorial located here!) There you have it. The never-ending story of our darling built-ins. New here?
