Finally sheetrocked and got the first coat of mud on front wall.

Since I want a seamless integration between the shelves and wall, the sheetrock needs to be very tight to the shelves. I left a 3/8" reveal on the shelves (where the protrude through the wall); and the radiator cabinet has a full 3/4" reveal as the baseboard will need to die into on both sides. Quater-round will wrap in front of the cabinet on the floor, and die behind the radiator. This should cover any gaps that have presented themselves due to trying plumb/square/level the cabinet. As for the shelves, this is basically it! We are getting close to their final look. Obviously, when the windows have sills and trim, it will look much more finished (not that far off!)

All the pictures of electrical of electrical boxes are for documentation purposes.
(1) Both bedside outlets will be double ganged duplexes.
(2) Dedicated 20-Amp duplex is live and working great.
(3) New duplexes installed (but not yet serviced) in the middle bedroom.

To do list:
(1) Finishing mud and sand, new wall and ceiling.
(2) Scrape all remaining wallpaper. Mud and tape all corners.
Bed Wall
(1) Tapcon into brick for bed wall, to stabilize wall and give corner nailers
(2) Pick height of sconces in bedroom, so i can install and wire two new work sconce boxes. This will allow for finishing the sheetrock in the bedroom completely.
(3) Decide on wall moldings. I am thinking about three rectangles, 2 end ones would have lights in the center, and one centering one over the bed. Sort of a homage to old wall moldings.
Example (just the upper portion):

Wouldn't this be great if these pictures were actually from our house?
Honestly, I wouldn't mind having these all over the house.

Outside Bedroom
(1) Put in old work ceiling boxes in both hallway and middle bedroom
Check out the pictures below

Rockwool soundproofing insulation.  I doubt it has a chance vs. the 10,000 motorcycle dudes that come ripping down our street all summer. 

3/4 of the way there.  The cuts around the shelves were pretty difficult.  I won't go for this modern look ever again.

The man responsible for this disaster.

Is that Elvira behind me?
