DH is renovating our century home.  He is currently making us a master bedroom.  He needed to cover the old cast iron sewer pipe in the room, and didn't want to just have a jut out.  Instead he made a built in bookcase to cover it.  Next to it, is a new walk in closet that he made for us, by cutting into the next room, which wasn't being used effectively.  All the molding you see in the room he made himself.  I'm sure he would appreciate any comments people might have.

What a nice cover up!  The color is also lovely for moldings.

Old houses can be challenging to modernize with radiators, exposed pipes, etc. It is wonderful that your hubby has a passion for his own "craft"...I am sure he will be busy for years and loving every minute of it (well, some curse words will be expected!)...

New homes just don't seem to have the details and character of old homes...like wide moldings!  And, if they do, it is so expensive!

Great job, hubby!

Thanks for the kind comments.  Did you see that all the mouldings in this room were actually made by DH?  Talented eh!!  And he built our kitchen from scratch too.  Must get him to take pictures so I can post them too.

It looks awesome! I kept looking at the pictures to figure out where the pipe was and I can't tell!
