I built this for Girlfriend this Christmas. It was fun to surprise her. I put some jewelry in it, wrapped it, and put it under the tree. I think it turned out really nice. I installed a recessed bead-board back and 1/8" glass in the door. All black hardware and a two tone finish. She loves it but she filled it up real quick. I guess I could have built it bigger!
