Studio Cabinet Reveal

The moment you I have been waiting for is finally here.  After 2 1/2 long months of building in between bed times, meal times, basketball games, church obligations and a 2 week stint of influenza A my studio cabinets are finally done.  And I can’t tell you how utterly amazed I am that Sandra and I actually pulled this off!

But guess what?  You will have to go to her house to see the full reveal.  But I will give you a sneak peek here…because I am nice like that.

Do you love the bar pulls or what?  I have told you before about my obsession love for D. Lawless Hardware.  8” Bars like this usually run $10 – $15.  On D. Lawless they are $2.21.  Dude that is cheaper than IKEA.  And let me tell you, these are some good looking, high quality pulls.

I also ordered all my hinges from there as well.  I was nervous about mortising the hinges if I chose a European style hinge so we used these instead.  Again the cheapest I have seen these for is about $3.50 each when you buy them in a pack of 10.  D. Lawless Hardware has them for $1.44!  You do have to buy screws with this one but it still makes it the least expensive option out there.

Because the doors are so tall (80”) I had to install catches at the top as well.  I got them at D. Lawless Hardware for $.18 each.  Again, I did have to purchase screws though.

Okay this is the last picture you are getting from me.  Look at all that hidden storage.  {Squuueeealll!}  I can’t wait for moving day! I will see you over on Sawdust Girl for the full reveal.  It is worth the click, you won’t be disappointed!

    Way to jump on that PONY girl.. They look Stunning..and Amazing- WOW! Way to do it up…look at you go! Can’t wait to see your next project! Now you can make Anything! 🙂

  10. My goodness, Beckie! This is really amazing. I just visited Sandra’s site and saw the full reveal. I’d say you and Sandra together (along with your rescue friend!) make an incredible team. And it sounds like she could coach someone of just about any skill level as long as they’re willing to work hard.

    Thank you for the heads up on the hardware! Now I’m really curious about that company–my mother comes from a family named Lawless, and you don’t see that name every day.

    Congratulations on a job well done. I hope your new space is a huge blessing to you!

    LOVE it! You have so many great ideas! Can you move in with me for about a year and fix my house?

    I love the DIY projects, but can’t stand the clean up afterwards. I can’t seem to make things look the way they look in my head.

    • You have no idea how many times I vacuumed out all the saw dust in that room. Geesh! But my kids and I did our first project in it today and it was divine!

  12. I have been watching this project from the beginning! It looks beautiful and the price tag is fantastic! Hard work, but you will get years of enjoyment out of this project! Love it!

  13. Congratulations! I hope that you are proud of your new room and love every detail of it. This project is so inspiring!

    I love your work and the price of the pulls. I am a bargain shopper also but I don’t think I would ever have found that price!

    Question…I have builder grade cabinets in my kitchen and the bottoms and tops are falling apart. It is some kind of particle board with a piece of thin vinyl. They are just flat on the front. I don’t have the $ to hire someone to come fix them. Help.
