my silver cabinet!

I’ve had several things going on this week–which you’ll see in the next posts.  But I am so excited to finally show you my finished silver cabinet!

Cassie’s comment of how this “is one glamorous gun cabinet! crAcked me up! You know I usually tear stuff up and REcreate it–but not this one.  So it still does looks like a gun cabinet to me–and I whole heartedly agree with her assessment!

I love itExcept for the paint.

I’m still not happy with the “exterior” color.  I know it may LOOK like it matches the walls, but it’s actually a dark white–the walls are a pale straw color.  The whole day has been dark, dreary, and sometimes rainy–emphasis on “dark.”  So lighting was giving me trouble for pictures.

This project became a little more expensive than I originally anticipated.  $39.99 for the cabinet, and $38 for glass shelves.  Everything else used, I already had in my work studio.

Even though, I would definitely do it again!  Although, I think it would be nice with a solid, raised panel door (or two)!

No more talk—just pictures!

But at last, you can see the framed, glass shelves.
So glad I built them instead of looking at the front edge of the glass.

Yes—I have a thing for silver.  THIS is a little-bitty sample of my collection.  I have wAy more silver than any one person probably should–it’s a sickness.  I have many–!   ; D
