I’ve been trying to come up with another piece of furniture for the display window of our shop and while looking for inspiration online, I came across this cubby organizer from PB.
Since it was going to be rather large, I asked my hubby to help me with this one. And after several redos, here’s what we came up with .
We made a 4 foot x 4 foot box and then cut each center divider and attached with a nail gun. After than, I attached a piece of bead board to the back. I wanted to put some kind of number plates on the front of each cubby. I would have liked metal but since I didn’t have that and wanted to keep cost down, we ripped 1/4 thick pieces of wood off the extra scraps of wood and I cut them down to 1 1/2 inch pieces and sanded them down to look like this.
I attached them to the front of each cubby with wood glue.
Then I took some caulk and filled in all the gaps and holes to prepare for painting.
I painted the entire cabinet ultra white by Valspar then took my sander to it to distress it quite a bit. I wanted it to look pretty rough. Then I stenciled the numbers on the front of each wood label with black paint.
Total cost for this project was $15 for the bead board. Everything else, we already had. Yay!
Here’s how it looks…..
It was hard to actually put this piece in the shop. I loved it so much I wanted to keep it for our home. But I can’t wait to fill it with items from our store.
And it does look great in the window.
Speaking of windows…..the sign is finished and here’s how it looks….
I really appreciated everyone’s suggestions and since symmetry is something I sometimes have to have, we decided to put it all on one window while the other window will be used for display, but I’m not revealing that side just yet. 🙂
Have a great day!
