Finished just in time for Christmas, A storage closet for my 8 year old daughter’s 20” dolls and thier wardrobe.
My wife had seen it in a catolog, but she felt that the wanted way to much for it. I was tasked to make not one, but three. Most of my projects are one and done. In the past, I had mentioned that if you like something that will making let me know and I will make more than just one. It’s easier now, then going back and trying to set up the tools again.
I have two more almost ready for paint. One is for a niece, and the other is for a friend’s daughter.

Larry, I had no chose but to paint them. I had constructed them out of plywwod and poplar and made them white to match what was seen in a catolog.
I hate to paint furniture, I have had greater success with stains and varnish.

Hello,
I signed up just to get in touch with you but it says that I have to do at least 5 post. How else can I get in touch with you to find out if you are willing to do another one of these and how much. I, just as your wife, think that these companies are asking way to much for an item to store clothes in. I would I am trying to surprise my daughter for her birthday which is not until the summer. Thanks…Scharon
