Once again, we depart on a journey of loving creation!!
I saw the newest kid's design on Ana's blog and knew that I HAD TO BUILD THIS!! We need more storage and "counter space" for my budding chef.
Overall this was a VERY easy build, but it was time consuming with the curved cuts that needed to be made and then sanded before finishing.
Once the curves were cut out and sanded, I had the piece nailed together within 10 minutes:
I made sure to fill all holes and knots with putty and sanded well before I painted it white.
(I use Behr Polar Bear in Semi Gloss.)
I then carefully painted the "back" pink. Looking back, this would have been A LOT EASIER if I would have painted the back FIRST, and THEN nailed it on! HELLO, DUH! I was having a moment of "I just need to get this done before we go on vacation..."! (I used Lowes Valspar Polka Pink in Satin.)
At this point, there was NO HOLDING HER BACK....my daughter wanted to play with this NOW! I turned the fan on and let it blow FULL BLAST on the piece during my daughter's nap. It dried surprisingly FAST. She helped me load it up and arrange all of her canned goods! (Yes, she LOVES these cans and we make more every "can" chance we get!)
