60s Beautility cabinet

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The cabinet only cost me 35 to buy and around 30 to do up but it looks amazing and is a beautifully made piece of furniture; so much nicer than the flat-pack, mass produced stuff in the shops. It has been much admired by friends and family. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient; this piece took me around a week to complete but it was well worth the effort!

What you will need

  • Ebony wood stain
  • interior strip light and a pair of funky chrome cabinet handles

Q&A with Juju loves junk

Sheila Zachariae asked:
Juju, well done you! I, too, am a junk lover since I was a teenager! My house is FULL of trash to treasure items! Having moved on to almost full time knitting, with a shop, I now only look at the many things I come across and say..."oh, the things I could do to THAT"! I am now a follower of yours and look forward to your next treasure!
