While the boys (the hubs, my dad and my brother) were hard at work on the mudroom and while we had all the tools out, I garnered some motivation (and possibly guilt over being the only one not doing anything) and decided to finally get these shelves up to par with a quick little fix. I pulled out a couple 1x2s from our stash to update each shelf with mitered trim. The 45 degree miter cuts were incredibly simple thanks to the use of a chop saw, but they could also be cut using a miter box and hand saw. I cut three trim pieces for each shelf and left the back of each trim-free since they wouldn't be seen.
Once all the cuts were made and each was proven to fit
Much better, right? And the perfect little perch for Mr. Chicky. There's nothing better than finishing a project. One down, many to go.
