wallpaper cabinet – part 3
June 21, 2012
Due to the fact that this cabinet I am having built is nearly 8 feet long, we determined that it will need a center support.
Not thrilled, but necessary. While discussing the best way to support the center something got lost in translation and my builder did the exact opposite of what I asked him to do.
I found this out in a picture text message late Friday afternoon, a fabulous way to start my weekend. My simple cabinet all of a sudden looked like 2 little cabinets fused together.
I ran downtown early Tuesday to have a look and figure out the best solution. Luckily the problem is easily solved by cutting back the center support by 3 inches and then enlarging the 2 center drawer fronts by 1/2 and inch.
Otherwise, I am happy with how the piece is coming along. I dropped off the hardware when I went to visit as well and am very excited to see the finished product!
Here it is with the center support, not what I envisioned. Next post it will be fixed and ready for the wallpaper!
The center support and leg are being cut back 3 inches (the thickness of the top) so that they are recessed and less prominent. The drawer faces are being re-made 1/2 inch longer.
Here is the pull, 10 inch polished nickel. Sleek and shiny!
