So, after spending so much time in the shop building my stuff I thought it a good idea to take a break and complete a project for my Wife. She likes to X-stitch (sewing for those of us not into that) and Genealogy and needed a cabinet to store her patterns, material and files. She has a crafts room and outside of it was an area at the top of the stairs which was unused and wasted. I built this built-in to provide her plenty of storage for both her passions. The built-in has three sections with the outside ones mostly cabinets. The bottom areas of each are file drawers which can be adjusted fro either letter or legal size files. The center section is drawers, again the bottom is a file drawer with adjustable size. She wanted it painted white and the doors made from bead board. Thanks for looking.

Very nice. What kind of paint? Did you spray or bush? I need to do one of these for my wife.

Very nice cabinet work, especially the inset doors. Everything you did is first class craftsmanship. It is good to see woodworkers like you embrace quality in construction as well as eye appeal [the artistic side].

Hi Broglea,

I just used a white enamel and rolled/brushed it on. I thought about spraying but the mess was more than I wanted to deal with. If I could have built it as components in the shop I would have sprayed it and then installed it. Since it is built in the brush worked better. Just worked hard to minimize the brush marks.
