With the rolling ladder installed and full of books, here is a look at the finished Library. It is difficult to get a sense of the scale and finish in pictures, as always. All in all, One of the best reclaimed projects I've worked on!
Th only thing left to add now is the rolling ladder. In person, without the funny colors that the digital camera spits out, the top section and the desktop, which are natural hickory, offset the silvery heavily textured feel of the main. Together they form a piece that is definitely part of our current time period and not just a huge weathered antique! It fits nicely into the home for that reason.
