French County Wardrobe

This is probably one of my favorite pieces I have built.  Challenging but fun.  I built it as two separate sections, an upper and lower cabinet to make it easier to carry indoors.  I added a full-extension drawer below for storage. The two-toned paint combination did take a lot of extra time. Because I used an airless spraying to paint I had to tape and cover each section separately.

Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Poplar, pine plywood, Alder,

WOW it looks awesome the extra time spent on the painting was more than worth it looks spectacular. I bet you also could make a great profit selling this Wardrobe either on line or in a consignment shop, if I had the need for one and the money I would defiantly buy one!!

Disneyworld! It is certainly the most popular place that I know of for family vacations here in the United States. We have been there a few times and it is absolutely a fantastic place. I wanted to give you a rundown of the Walt Disneyworld hotels. Some of them I have personally stayed at, and others I have heard things about. http://www.funnytoysgift.com/list-LED-Halloween-Gift-1.html

I love the way the paint job came out on this and I really dig the having the molding on the top stained.

It looks really great! 

I have fallen in love with it the second I saw it and somehow I am now convinced that I need a new wardrobe ;) 

I guess you don't have plans for the wardrobe laying around - but would you mind doing a fast sketch (just a simple one on paper) with all the measurements noted? I would be thrilled to try building it myself in the summer.
