The Wife® is a hairdresser and therefore, a product junkie. Before I remodeled our master bath, she used to store her goodies under the vanity in a plastic, 3-drawer, roll-around storage cart. After the remodel, there wasn’t room so it sat out in the now remodeled master bedroom. It was a bit of an eyesore to my sore eyes, so I offered to make here something that fit in with our mission style furniture a bit better.

She has always liked storage baskets and had even looked a few basket storage cabinets over the years. So after she picked out some baskets she liked, I drew up plans for the cabinet. It’s far from an exact match to our furniture…it’s mahogany while this piece is cherry and I took the finish a bit too dark…but it still works.

Completed: March 2016

Very nice. The baskets and wood go together nicely.
If I were to make this, my wife would just put everything on top of it and not in one of the baskets.
Well done.
