There is an alcove in my daughters room that I wanted to hang cabinets in, and eventually build a desk to go under it. Don’t ask about the colours, they were my wife’s choice/instructions. These cabinets were made entirely out of mdf. The doors are flat panel and the suspended shelf is held in place by 6 poplar spindles that were turned on the lathe. If you look carefully, you will see that they are all slightly different. oops. First lathe project ever. I have improved significantly since then. The left corner cabinet has a double layer lazy susan in it. Im overall happy with it and I think it is a good use of space, especially when I build the desk to go under it. Im choosing the finish this time though:)

Great cabinets. Color is interesting and they match

Nice…and I agree, the color is interesting. You did a great job too of making it work where they are.

I think it’s very flashy for a girls room. I’m sure she luvs it too. Very nice

The cabinets look good, probably perfect for your daughters room, I dont even know what to say about the color, so i let my daughter look at it she said, “COOL” so there you have it

Have your say...
