The wonderful wife wanted a corner cupboard so I built this one I found on Ana White's site. The address is http://ana-white.com/2010/12/plans/corner-cupboard Little did I know that I would have to repaint the entire dining room to match the corner cupboard. A really good project that will test your abilities and patience. Constantly keep everything level,vertical, and square. It is a trip to say the least. Most important follow the instructions and stay calm when things do come out as expected. I got the stone for the doors from the ReStore at Habitat for Humanity and the hardware from Kennedy Hardware in Indiana. I did make one mistake on the doors. See if you can find it. I call it a “Conversation Starter.”
Follow the instructions. I filled the joints made by the sides meeting the front frame and back with 1/4″ dowel. The plans can be found at
Less than $200. Cost rose because I spent about $30 for the cast iron hardware and $24 for the stone to fill the voids in the doors. I also bought the better grade of pine for the front frame and door frames.
About a week. Had to wait on the hardware to arrive and I gave the cabinet three coats of paint. The grout also took 48 hours to dry.
Pine lumber and sanded pine plywood.
Three coats of Behr Pearly White with a lot of pre-sanding and sanding between the first two coats.
