So, what is left?

Take the wheels off and attach the bench to the wall.



Let’s take a look back and see how all this came to be.

How we painted the bookshelves:


Oil based primer


Swiss Coffee semi gloss paint


If you see any gaps or dings fill them with wood filler.


Degrease everything, Tsp is a great degreaser as is vinegar and hot water.


Sand everything I used an electric sander with medium grit (80 or 100).


Prime with an oil based primer. Foam rollers will give you the look as though your cabinets have been sprayed.


Lightly sand


Caulk away, it will hide all imperfections.


Paint your desired color using a foam roller or spray them.

NOTE: Latex paint will adhere perfectly to oil based primer. Latex primer over oil paint will not work at all.


Let it dry, buff out any drips and give it another coat.
