A "new" piece of furniture
I had a sketch of what I wanted the piece to look like, but I changed and added details as I was building it.
|This is the top of the desk. The piece of wood for the legs runs from the top all the way to the bottom|
|I wanted to add a door, so I cut a piece to mimic the scallop on the right side and added a bottom.|
I also cut decorative pieces for the legs.
|I added a piece to the top, also mimicking the curves on the bottom part, to give the whole piece more unity|
The piece came out even better than I expected it to be. I was sorry to paint the black vintage door hinges, but the knobs I chose were white ceramic and the black hinges did not look good. Perhaps at some point I will strip the hinges and find black hardware for the drawers. I painted the cabinet with semi-gloss latex.
See you next time. Lola
