My wife said could I make her a kitchen trolley, I’m not keen on making things to order, but I could see the benefits of one, as our kitchen is not huge. So thought if I get one online I can adapt it, to suit. I Saw this cheap flat pack thing that I knew wouldn’t be brilliant, but turned out to be a complete load of rubbish.
Anyway set forth to make a silk purse lol.
Put some extra faces on the drawer fronts, used what was supposed to be the handle for pushing the trolley into a kitchen paper roll holder, filled in one end completely, making a door to fit….. A rolling wine trolley? No sorry just somewhere to store the kitchen waste bin (not food stuff just waste paper and packaging) It’s just that I saw this blank door front and decided to try some printing onto wood using an ink jet printer which several people in the past have said you can’t do, but you can of course, it’s was just a case of using the right paper, which in my case was some old backing paper from those c/d disc labels. You have to be careful when (a) applying the printed paper as it can easily smudge and (b) that you use your computer to reverse the print so that it eventually comes out the right way round. You have plenty of time to work with it as the ink doesn’t dry on the this type of paper as it would normally. Conclusion I wish I had made the whole thing myself.
Thanks for looking.
