Finishing Work on the Tall Cabinet...

After cleaning up the kitchen, I decided to go into the shop and start the third fabric bolt cabinet. The first thing I did was burn off a bunch of calories sawing the overhangs off of each piece.
After all of these were cut flush, I started to reach for my little yellow sander. The minions stopped me. "Remember to use your dust mask!" they said. Since I am an obedient master, I put it on only to have all of them laughing hysterically. (They do that alot...)
They got ahold of my dust masks again!
After the hilarity died down, I told them now they owe me those banana donuts I've been smelling for the last two days. They wandered off muttering that I was a party pooper. What I put up with around here....So, here we are back at the cabinet sanding away.
These cabinets are alot easier to sand while they are in pieces so each piece got a thorough sanding and I got them ready to be glued together.
Here it is all assembled!
Tomorrow, we can start painting. My sister-in-law has a cat and I found one that I think will work in her quilt shop; that's her on the lavender cabinet...or is it a him, I'm not sure now. Anyway, after all this work, I think I deserve a cookie don't you? Have a great day!


  1. Wow! You've been very busy. Lots of progress. This project is going to be perfect for such an avid quilter as your SIL. You're giving fabulous inspiration for using all those Michael's hutches I have stashed away for a rainy day. - S

    1. Thanks S! My SIL is an amazing quilter, I'll put up a picture of the one she gave to me. I sitll have a bunch of these Michael's hutches left, but not looking forward to the day that I use the last one...

  2. That mask is hilarious! I love it!

    1. The minions always leave a mess when they've been pulling tricks on me so I should have known something was up. Back to having fun in the shop!
