We chose to prime and paint most of our materials BEFORE installing them, just because it’s faster to do it this street since you can roll all the boards and sides quickly (plus painting them after they’re installed can make you prone to pooling puddles in seams and corners). We still did touch-ups once everything was installed, but that went nice and quick. The paint is Simply White by Benjamin Moore (in a semi-gloss finish) which is what’s already on the other trim in the room.

Today is a very important day! It’s Nate’s birthday! The large 33. So old. Luckily he appearance to be getting better with age. To solemnize Nate becoming elderly, let’s ventilate how he built our living room built-ins. This post is heavy on pictures. Light on words. Just copy my husband. Pretty on the eyes, easy on the ears.Pretend that makes sense.We recently revealing the finished built-ins. Today we prove that Nate actually framed them.I asked him for tips and wile that he learned along the procession. His number one suggestion is to “not build them.” But he doesn’t mean that. Especially after he added up the cause. As you may know, accountants speak in numbers. We spent about $450 absolute for the above built-ins (including mantel, molding, hardware, and paint). This purpose 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 resembling our other projects but more like a direct. These cabinets are obviously custom so our reach may not be super helpful to you. Hopefully they can aid guide you if you are building your own. (Unfortunately there isn’t enough delay for us to supply everyone with their very own custom dimensions. Sorry!) It’s okay if you just look at the pictures. That’s totally what I would do. #bustedNate started by building the degraded cabinets. He used 3/4″ MDF (4×8 sail). 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 physical.He cut the MDF sheets to the appropriate dimensions with a circular saying.He attached the boards with screws. Anywhere you would see a screw, he utility a pocket hole screw. If you wouldn’t see the propeller, he used a regular screw. He also used wood glue on all of the edges.He attached the top of base cabinet with finish nailer. He then built the frame using pocket hole screws. He attached the frame with finish nails and wood glue. Always wood glue. Always.He then filled concavity, calked, sandy, etc. Repeat. Etc. He then formed the top part of the cabinets.He started by attaching the long sides to top. We used grooved boards for the back. He built the top by gain over each one apart to the frame with a finish nailer and wood glue.  He then made compose similar to the base cabinet. He attached the frame to the cabinet with a finish nailer and possessed glue. Finish nailer.Fill, caulk, sand, repeat. We then painted the cabinets worn our paint sprayer. We did 2 petticoat primer, 1 coat paint. We attached our shelves after paint (honest based on era constraints). It would be easier to affix the shelves before painting. We sometimes like to do things the trying way. We permanently attached our shelves. You could do brackets. We ken we’re far too lazy to adjust shelves so we went with them permanently attached.We induct the base cabinet first. Nate made sure it was level front to back and side to side, using shims on the bottom as needment.He attached the base inclose to walls with screws.We then placed the upper small on top. These cabinets are heavy. I thought we might die each time. Maybe grab a friend or two to support 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, portray until you never want to see filler, caulk or paint ever again. Here we have the cabinets in their naked rank. You could only imagine the stares we got with this set up. Nate’s a paint sprayer hog. Luckily watching is just as fun. It’s probable magic. Once the cabinets were built and painted. We worked on the install. As a refresher, here’s where we started. We first induct the base cabinet on the right. Nate was terrified the left wouldn’t fit so we started with the one that would be the smoothest to induct. Starting on the right was a fit decision. A little dry wall needed to be removed before installing the left. Turns out most of the walls in our habitat aren’t straight. Whatever. We almost died putting on the top port but we squeezed it in. I went to work on Labor Day morning and came home to beautiful molding on the fireplace. I should work on holidays more often. Wait. No.He also installed quarter round to finish off most of the face. He then caulked and barren. I followed with the paint brush. The possession were installed part way through the cabinet installation. We decided to go ahead and install the cabinets before the wood floors. We have zero plans of removing these cabinets so it shouldn’t body. Famous last words. I was so excited that I styled the shelves before there were cabinet doors. I went to craft night one night and came home to doors. Clearly the moral of this story is that I should go off more often. (Door tutorial located here!) There you have it. The never-conclusion floor of our darling built-ins. New here?
