First, we've finished the finishing touches. That included staining the pieces of flooring that were hidden by the first closet, sealing those pieces with poly, then finally painting and attaching little strips to cover the plywood edges.
I applied the stain with a t-shirt, and the results were much better than in the office.
This is the office. I applied with a brush, and the application was clearly too heavy, even when I wiped it immediately. Most of it will be hidden though, and the front facing pieces aren't too bad.
Lastly, Zach cut pieces of 3/4-inch wide strips and I painted then before gluing to the raw plywood edges. We found them in the section of Lowe's with the crown molding, and had originally planned to use on a record table build. That's taking backseat to the closet. It took the closet from this:
These are weird words to describe the building details of a closet, but alas. We couldn't be happier with the IKEA Pax system these last couple weeks and it's adaptability to alternative builds. Next up: curtains, and maybe drawer pulls?
