Rustic Floor Cabinet With Shelves Made With Pallet Wood
Handmade rustic floor cabinet with 2 shelves made with pallet wood.
Size: W43cm x D27cm x H80cm approx.
I made this floor cabinet using reclaimed pallet wood.
After I dismantled the pallet I cut the timber to size and sanded it down being careful to preserve its weathered look while giving it a smooth finish.
I put the cabinet together with glue and screws, which I then covered with wooden nails.
I then gave it 1 coat of walnut stain and 2 coats of bees wax to protect it.
I also painted the inside a vintage willow colour to give it a fresher and cleaner look.
To complete the rustic look I used 2 rusted butterfly unequal hinges and I made a wooden catch to keep the door closed. With the addition of a ceramic knob I also ensured the cabinet would have an added touch of shabby chic style.
The cabinet shows plenty of signs of wear and tear and the occasional nail from the original pallet here and there but I think this only adds to its character.
