This is what I came up with so far.
It's 7 cm high, 8cm wide and 1,8cm deep.
I wanted to add doors on either side and leave the middle open. But after already assembling this half way it became clear that I won't be able to fix the door quite like I imagined. So I decided to leave this one as it is, the only thing I will add is some moulding on the lower shelf so mini treasures don't fall off when displayed.
The inner shelf is 0,8cm deep. I'm going to try another one, with some improvements for the doors this time. I also wanted to add a drawer on the bottom so hopefully that will be on the next one too. I have all of the parts for the improved version already cut except for the drawers, so tomorrow I can continue assembling the pieces. Hopefully the second try will turn out as I had hoped. But despite this hiccup I still like this one too. I have some parts cut for some more of these, different styles. They're so adorable! Now I need to think of what kind of finish I want this one to have. I was thinking shabby chic but if I want it for Faye's cottage then it has to be in some darker colours. We'll see...
Oh, and I wanted to introduce you my new best friend!! :D
My boyfriend got me this last week and I've been dying to try it out. It's great for straight cuts, way better than the saw I was using before (borrowed from my dad). So now I can make straight cuts way easier than before.... I think I see lots more furniture projects in the near future :D
Well, hopefully I'll have good news to report tomorrow.
Until next time!
