This is a view coming into the room with the toe-kick cabinets finished.
This view shows the toe-kicks for the skinny walkway area.
And this view shows the second room. You can clearly see where the work bench is going to be.
I really want to dress up the toe-kicks, so I bought a bunch of molding that I stained and lacquered, just like I did the valance trim. I also got some quarter-round molding to hide the gap between the main molding and the uneven floor.
I started by putting the molding against the green wall.
And continued the work along the toe-kick cabinets.
This is the area in the second room where the workbench is going to be.
There is also going to be a skinny cabinet at the room's entrance.
The next major step is to build storage cabinets. These are time-consuming to build, but they are reusable and provide tremendous storage space. You can see how I built these cabinets in a separate article I have on this web site. This photo shows the first one I completed.
Here I am testing a drawer in the second cabinet I completed. This one holds tools. The blank wall on the left side of the photo is where my workbench is going to be, so having a cabinet full of tools nearby is going to be extremely handy. The plan is to store all of my model railroading stuff in the cabinets in this second room, while the first room's storage is going to be used for household stuff.
