This is a cabinet/stand for a Make-Up and Hair Styling head for a 7-year old girl. Her parents are friends of ours. Her mother asked me to make a table for the head – it attaches to a table using a c-clamp thingy (you can see the top of it in the photo). I could just make a 12” tall table and clamp the the to it….OH NO….I had to make a whole cabinet. The drawer on the left is large enough to store the head. The other two drawers are for her to store brushes, etc. I still need to finish it…can’t decide on paint or stain….
I dyed it using red & white india ink to make pink and thinned it with alcholhol to give it the distressed look. It also has 5x coats of wipe on poly (7x on the top).
Wood is 1/2” birch ply and select pine. The drawer runners are made of maple.
The girl who will recieve this is named Mary Kate to I took the Mary Kay loggo and modified it to fit her name.
