Natalie wanted a linen cupboard for the guest bathroom.
We found some examples of shaker style cupboards that she liked.
I drew some quick plans and rounded up some material, poplar lumber and birch plywood.
A few hours with the track saw and a couple dozen dominos later, I had a case.
Poplar bead board made the door panels.
After glueing everything up I installed the hardware and trimmed the door to fit.
A little filler and it was time for some milk paint.
Milk paint was an interesting experience. After a couple tries I got a decent mix. I found that mixing the powder into a thick paste first helped. Then I could thin it down and let it sit overnight. Straining the mix before application helped.
Once the painting was complete I set up out on the deck and sprayed few coats of shellac to give the paint a bit more depth and protection.
