Worked on the hardwood floor for the linen closet this evening. Cut a set of diagonal planks…

I still need to add the baseboard, which will cover the unevenness on the right side of the floor.

After looking at several photos of old linen closets, I’ve noticed most of them used some sort of lace-trimmed cloth to cover the shelves.

This afternoon I bought a small pile of tiny bits of fabrics, ribbons, and lace, in order to make these linings, as well as sheets, pillow cases, blankets, and towels.

And so I cut out, stained, and glued in three of the shelves….and created a lace-trimmed lining for one of them.

Still much to do, but for now…good night.
