This is a cabinet I just finished building for that little corner of my world where I paint. I needed a new desk, a book cabinet and something to hold my paints. Decided that was too much for me to do this winter so I bought the desk.
The bookcase is finished except for those darn raised drawer fronts I have to learn how to do all over again. It’s been about a year when everyone was nice enough to give me all kinds of advise on how to make them. I hope to get to those this week.
There isn’t much to say about this. I used Milk Paint again and distressed it some to show alittle of the wood thru. It’s a tight space this had to go in so the shelves are only 6 1/2 inches deep.
I needed something to hold about 300 bottles of paint. This hold 250 plus some if I stack them. After putting it in place I found out there isn’t enough light to see the names of the paints on the bottles. I might have to add under cabinet lighting under each shelf or have my husband put in another light overhead. Oh, and I can’t see what’s on the top shelf. What was I thinking? But I’ll get use to it.
The last picture is what I had my paints on before. It spins and it worked great. It was just too ugly and too big after I bought the new desk so I had to do something. I love my new work area now. I have so much more room and storage space then before. I probably spend more time painting then I do in the work shop so this is a project I’ve needed for awhile. I’ll be posting my bookcase soon. Thanks for looking.
