Family Room Cabinets

Family Room Cabinets
The first set resides in our family room and are used to store games (the tall one on the right), spare dishes and glasses for entertaining and genral storage.

They are built in a simple Mission style using white oak wood and plywood.  The counter top is Silastone.

I convinced my wife to let me build these (She thinks I'm too busy!) after we visited the Ugly Duck, a cabinet liquidator which is the best place to buy cabinets in Spokane.  They wanted $1440 for just the equivalent of the lower cabinet.  I paid approximately $1400 for  everything  including the counter top.



Quilt Fabric Stash Cabinets
The second picture is two cabinets I built for my wife's quilt fabric stash.  They are 6 feet tall, 42 inches wide and 24 inches deep. And yes, they are full of fabric. I built them in the same style and woods as the family room cabinets. My wife likes the style and it's an easy style to build. The only difference is that the sides are frame and panel construction instead of solid 3/4" plywood.






Wall Phone Cubby
The third picture is a wall cubby hole I built for the wall phone we have in the family room.  The phone had been just hung on the wall where the phone jack was located, placing it in the midst of a wide open space.  I moved the phone jack to the other side of the wall in the utility room and ran the power cord and phone line into the back of the cubby which was set into the wall under the return air vent.

The space under the phone was designed for a drawer - I even cut the parts to build the drawer - but I find that I don't like the thought of a drawer any longer.
