I needed somewhere to put a small egg shaped fridge in my office with a little storage draw for drinks and things that usually go in it. This was my first attempt at furniture as most of my other projects have been for the workshop. I only used cheap pine from the local home centre. Painting the inside white made a lot of difference and I learnt a lot about finishing (what not to do) in the process.

This was the first time I’d made doors with rails and stiles with a floating panel (next project i’ll try a raised panel) and it worked out very well (for my standards).

I had to end up removing some of the back panel for more ventilation. I was pretty happy with the outcome and it’s great having something useful that I made next to my in my office now :)

I think you did a great job on the door and drawer front, very nice!
