The last thing to do was put the MDF top and trim on the bookcases.
We used 1 long piece so there weren't any seams. All the nail holes were filled in with spackle and the MDF was primed.
Then Handyman Hubby added the trim. He hates doing the trim and mitering the corners. It would help if he had a better saw. I think he did a great job!
Here is the MDF and trim all painted and looking purdy!
Doesn't it look like one big bookcase?
Here's the other side of the room . . .
Some fun close up pictures . . .
This is looking out at the front door and foyer from the library. See my vintage EXIT sign above the door? You know, just in case you can't find the way out. : )
The only thing I still want to change is the orange-y stair rail. I was thinking of painting it white but someone suggested black. Hmmm . . what do you think?
Update! Here is the stair rail painted white and the door painted black. Much better!

One last photo of the before . . . wow! What a difference!!
HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND!!!
