|Wall niche finished product.
I sealed all the gaps and corners with caulk and am attempting to sand it smooth.
All that is left now is trim on the front of the middle shelves and paint.
Update: shelves are done. Once the paint dries, the tape comes off the borders and voila! Another project for more prepping space is done.
Of course, the kids HAD to check the shelves for durability by climbing up in them and having a sit.
Now to move on to the next project.
