Designing an armoire was as much about need as it was about desire....
We needed to temporarily hide an old chimney as well as create something of substance
for this end of the room.
The table looks so much smaller in this photo .....
it is in reality 6 feet long and about 21 inches deep.
I picked up the windows on kijiji a while back and had always planned
to make a cupboard of sorts with them so I am now thinking that is actually what I will do.
So, basically it was all about making a box,
using a pine wood backing and rough pine boards on the side and bottom.
I wanted it to be deep enough for books as well as some favourite pottery so
I went with a 10" depth.
I painted all the interior white to soften the overall look.
