Shutter and Pallet Wood Creation - part 7 - FINISHED

My cupboard is finished and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

The series started here.

Since the last blog post I laid it on it's back and glued the pieces together and clamped it up:

Shutter Pallet Cupboard

It definitely needs a lot of clamps with pressure at the right spots

The top is simply made with three widths of pallet wood glued together.

I painted the shutter with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in the color "Provence" distressed and then finished it with a coat of clear wax.

The outside and inside is coated with clear shellac.

You can see holes from the previous use of the pallet wood, as well as different types of wood, although most looks like pine. There's a wood toggle to keep the door closed in keeping with the simplicity of design.

It's a one-of-a-kind piece.

 Everything I make is for sale... inquiries invited!
