Whoa!-Pause Right There! (DIY Four Door Cabinet)

Building a Custom Four Door Cabinet

Weekend Home Improvement Shows and a cup (or 2) of coffee will help get the creative mind thinking.  Of course, we had other things to do (e.g., more furniture in the garage to be worked on, grass cutting, weeding flower beds, etc.), but right now, we were glued to HGTV (love that channel).  An episode of House Crashers came on and a flash of a four door cabinet they were building came into view.

“Whoa!! Stop!! Back up” is what came out of my mouth!!  “Wow, that is a very cool cabinet.” I then turned to Gary and immediately asked, “Do you think you could build one like that?”  After about 30 seconds of reviewing the picture he said, “Sure, I can make that”!  Woo Hoo!!

So that afternoon the process began.  It was a lot of paint and we did not have our wonderful paint sprayer (Earlex)at the time, so this was all by hand.  It turned out Amazing!  The four door cabinet is not too deep, but just deep enough.  The storage at the bottom holds the “breakable” Christmas ornaments that I don’t have to box up!  It fits perfectly in our living room, and the piano hinged doors on this cabinet are so cool!  I love the frame edges around the doors.

Grandma’s End Table

The Barn Strikes Again…A Wood End Table!

Painted End Table before-Alden Design Studio

The family open-floor barn held many treasures.  Including one end table that I remember as a kid.  This particular end table was at my Grandmother’s house in the room we were not “allowed” in….the Formal Living Room.  Yep – this end table was one of those very pieces of furniture I vaguely remember yet I just had to rescue it!

The hubby inspected and emptied any critter remnants getting it ready for the next stage of its life.  The clean up was rather easy and I have to say there was pure joy in seeing this piece come back to life.

We normally see lots of pieces with “issues” in design, durability or wear and tear.  This end table was a well-made piece.  The builder did a fantastic job.  It just needed some “nourishing” and given the next chance.

I am so proud of how it turned out!  It is a bit different from what it was originally because I wanted to give it a more updated look.  It turned out beautiful! I plan on placing this piece in an “allowed” room where everyone can see it.
