Other then that, you did well.
Actually, I didn't nail the unit in at all. It's just sitting on a shelf inside the closet. I wanted the shelf unit wider than the hole in the wall to try and mask some of the cables a little (I put 2 outlets in the shelf, on the rear of the right side).

For now, I bought a plastic j-channel to cover up the exposed drywall edge, and I will put a piece of quarter round on the top edge. Thanks for the help.
