I finished this nursery room last year. It was my first try at cabinetry and took about 3 months of spare time. I used birch plywood (would do MDF if painting again) and then poplar for all the trim. It was also my first shot at making 5 piece doors, drawers and all that fun stuff. I fell in LOVE with pocket hole screws and the Kreg jig! Great learning experience!

nice work. All you need now is a cushion and a good book (about woodworking of course)

Very nice! Great looking nursery, that crib looks like quite a quality piece of furniture as well! You did a good job matching the stain on the bookcase tops with the crib and changing table. Terrific job all around, thanks for sharing!

Looks great!

As long as you are not painting walnut it should be okay :-) I understand one LJ admitted to painting walnut and has not lived it down to this day :-)

I would think painting over nice hardwood is some kind of punishable offense…?
