I dug into the drawer that has the unfinished Michael's cabinets and found that I only had four left and three of them were the same.
Everybody uses these and makes them fancy in different ways.
I just grabbed a few "Tiny Turnings", some laser cut corner brackets and a few beads. I got lucky. One of the strips of tiny turnings when cut in a certain place, fit perfectly in the scalloped area of the doors. I just cut them off with an exacto knife and glued them in with fast grab.
Then I improvised feet and a top crown with six of the corner brackets. I lined the front feet up with the lines of the cabinet above, not the outer decorative bottom. Then I turned two of them back to back for the top.
Pretty simple build. I put a couple of fan pieces at the bottom and stained the whole thing with Minwax Early American stain.
I will go back and do some finishing work. I still need to put on a coat or two of varnish.
It's too bad that the people that put these together aren't a little more careful with the glue. I am going to have to do some work on the bottom corners of where the drawer is. Maybe I can get Spike to sit in front of one of the spots and put a potted plant on the other side.... I now have furniture for another vignette.
It was a fast project that made Tessie happy. Now I am free to go bake Christmas cookies and fudge.....I wonder if I could put off the laundry for another day? Who needs clean clothes anyway?
See you tomorrow.
