This project took me forever to finish up. I have had the carcass built for several months but doing other projects and life getting in the way I just kind of set it aside. Well last week I decided it needed to go out of my shop so I finished it up. My wife is super happy with it and that makes it all worth it.
It is built using multiple joinery methods. The back is Ship lapped, the doors top and bottom rails are half lapped with the stiles and the rails infront of the shelves are attached with kreg pocket holes. We originally were going to use punched tin on it but decided to go with the chicken wire instead. I am very happy with the way the final product looks. The paint is Milk Paint Sea Green, and the inside is Milk Paint as well in Oyster White.
I am really happy with the milk paint. I really didn’t think I was going to like it but after getting it applied and adding the clear coat over it I am extremely happy. I will be using it again in the future.
The top is stained with a Dark Walnut Stain.
