Day 1; Emptied the closet (a huge chore all by itself), removed the existing clothing racks and furniture, stripped out the carpet and prepped for painting.
Day 2; Painted everything a nice white semi-gloss paint, unexpectedly it took more paint that anticipated necessitating the first hardware run for another gallon of paint. Prepped the sub-floor for the installation of the new hardwood floor. Stained the new molding. Laid out the floor, its going to be close on the materials.
Day 3; Forgot that the table saw was at the old house and had to go get it. Then discovered that the wrench to change the blades with was missing and went to the hardware store in search of one (trip #2). No luck, figured out a way to hold the blade in place and get it changed. The dull blade was replaced with an 80 tooth, carbide tipped blade. Lost half the day trying to get the right part. Started to lay the floor, air hammer wouldn't work, necessitating trip #3 to the hardware store for a new air hammer and went ahead and picked up a new compressor (not good for miniature painting though). Spent the rest of the day putting in the floor. I know I was pushing the edge, the closet is about 88 square feet and four boxes of bamboo was 95 square feet, I came out with basically a single piece left over.
Day 4; assembled and put in the new clothing racks and cabinets. The Ikea cabinets had to be assembled standing up, they were to tall to be able to lift up into place. All of course of which took longer than expected.
Day 5; Finally were able to start putting clothes back into the closet. In the we managed to get it done and it looks good.
|Carpet out, walls painted, starting to layout the floor|
|Just so I remember what kind of paint to buy|
|Floor is in|
|Putting the old racks back in the back, new rack in the front. The Ikea cabinet will go between these racks.|
|Same thing on the other side. A rolling shelf in the back and clothes rack in the front.|
|With the cabinets in, shoe racks will go against the back wall.|
|Getting Lani's approval of the finished closet.|
