Here is the whole thing. Eight feet tall, 6 feet wide. Sanded, primed and painted.
It is packed with all of my cookbooks, some dishes, an archaic stereo system and a special kid’s section. The bottom cabinets store books and magazines.
The kid’s section was, of course, inspired by The Creative Family. I wanted a place for their creative supplies. The dining table is always the place for creative playing and this sits right next to it. It’s stocked with scrap paper, drawing paper, colored construction paper, a few reference books, notepads, pencils, scissors, pencil sharpener, brushes, markers, crayons, paint, glue and the all important string. You never know what you might need to tie up (hopefully not your brother). The dinosaurs are there to keep things playful.
I had originally made it so that they could get what they needed whenever they wanted, but the doors on this cabinet are hard to open and close, which has actually been the only reason why it has stayed so organized. They still use everything pretty frequently, but mom and dad have to open and assist, which I think, keeps things a bit tidier. When you need something, something else has to be put back. It works so far.
