My son has been working on this for a few months now. I finally got it. I gave him some measurements but told him he could go a couple inches either way....it went a couple inches more on EVERY way. haha I told him to make it funky and i liked color. once he had the basic box done, i never saw it again. when i would ask about it....he said you don't tell the artist how to paint the mona lisa.
It is a one of a kind and i guarantee you will never see another. it is 52" wide; 28" deep; 40" high
There are rakes at the bottom of the doors because he says people usually close floor cabinets with their foot.
The handles on the doors are deer antlers...held on by pieces of rebar.
Here it is open. inside the doors are painted green...funky
There is a lazy suzan in there....made with different types and colors of wood. the top shelf is painted purple....i told him to make it funky.
The bottom shelf pulls out
There is a basket in the pull out shelf....held down with old fashioned can openers.
The top is made of slabs of redwood that i got for him to make this.
The corners are copper...that he fashioned
And he calls these butterflies...that holds the wood together
I love that he used the piece with the cool knot in it
I wanted a couple shelves on the side for cookbooks...check...has funky red metal holding them up. i love that he left the metal unpainted and just as it was. he says the metal pieces were from an old horse and buggy wagon
I requested spice racks for the other side...check....very fancy. the handles are from silverware...both sides have handles
He cut out all the decorations freehand; his wife designed them. There is red metal around them, with large springs...he said those are just for fun. but you could put your foot on the rack on the bottom to help push it if you wanted to. that baby is heavy.
And he had to put his name on one of them. haha i told him i thought artists usually signed things down in a corner....smallish. he just laughed
There is a towel rack on the back. you unscrew one side and slide on your towels. there is also room for a dish towel to hang.
The ends of the towel racks have little horseshoes....and fancy knobs with Texas stars.
The bottom has red locking wheels. This was so awesome, when i saw it i cried. he took a video...i hope that does not wind up on facebook. hahaha
I am loving my kitchen island.....that boy can do funky, can't he?
