A neighbor asked if I could build a cabinet similar to one she had seen at Ikea. The one she saw was not of a size she could use. After looking at the piece, we opted to use 4 hinged doors instead of 2 sliding doors, reeded glass instead of clear, and bun feet. She wanted the piece hand painted (not sprayed) white to match some book cases she already had in the room. This is the result.

Very nice. The decision on the glass was correct in my opinion.

All the design choices here were excellent, in my opinion. Great job on the construction as well.

Nice cab, I like the clean lines to it. I think the reeded glass makes the irony of non-see-through glass complete.
